  1. Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Stir in garlic, and cook 1 minute.
  3. Stir in rice, cumin, coriander, turmeric, and cayenne pepper.
  4. Cook and stir 5 minutes, then pour in vegetable stock.
  5. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 30+ minutes or until liquid is absorbed. The original recipe called for 20 minutes but I have found that it takes quite a bit longer.
  6. Drain and rinse Chick Peas and black beans.
  7. Gently mix garbanzo beans, black beans, cilantro into the cooked rice. Season with salt and pepper.
