Rice-Tomato and Chickpea Casserole


Rice-Tomato and Chickpea Casserole is a meal in one dish for family or party dining.


1 cup  onion slivers
2 cloves garlic, crushed
4 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup  uncooked brown rice
2 cups  hot water (more if needed)
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley (divided into two portions)
4 large very ripe tomatoes, chopped
1  dried bay leaf, crumbled
Salt or salt substitute and pepper to taste
1 teaspoon  paprika
1 cup cooked chickpeas, drained


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In an oven-proof pot, saute the onions and garlic in oil until golden. Add the rice, water, and half the parsley. Cover and bake for one-half hour at 375 degrees.

Add the tomatoes and seasonings. Cover again and bake until done (cooking time varies with rice variety and altitude), but allow at least 30 minutes. If more hot water is needed, add it in small amounts. When the mixture is done to taste, stir in the chickpeas with a fork.

Top with remaining chopped parsley, and serve hot.
