Mushroom and Chickpea Pilaf (Pilafi me Manitaria kai Revithia)

Hi there, I enjoy making Pilaf dishes as much as I love making Pasta dishes.  This specific Pilaf recipe has mushrooms which I just adore, (but my poor hubby doesn’t really enjoy eating mushrooms) and of course chickpeas.  So, for him I make it plain, and from there he loves adding yogurt.  Me not so much 😦

Anyway, I found this recipe a few years ago, and to be honest I am not sure of it’s origin, but one thing I am sure of it’s not Greek.  I look at some of my fellow bloggers Rice recipes ufff, I don’t know which one I want to jump in and eat first!!!  they look so amazing with so many different variations.  Just wonderful!!! 🙂

Back to this recipe, it basically calls for Basmati rice, but I use any rice I have in the food pantry,  and today the only kind I had was normal short grain rice, this Pilaf is quick to make, and so good to eat.  🙂

 

Ingredients:

500 grams Rice

1 box Mushrooms

1 Large Onion chopped

250 grams boiled Chickpeas

1 litre Chicken Broth

Salt

1 tablespoon Olive Oil

1 tablespoon butter

Preparation:

P1000293

Dice mushrooms into slices.

P1000296

In a small sauce pan boil Chickpeas.

P1000298

I personally prefer to make my own Chicken broth instead of ready made.  All that is needed is to boil any chicken parts you have in your refrigerator.  Add Olive Oil

P1000299

In a large sauce pan add in the butter to melt.  Once the butter has melted add in the onion and the rice.  Stir for a few minutes and then add in the chicken broth.

P1000309

Add in Chickpeas, Mushrooms and stir.  Let simmer for about 20 minutes and until the chicken broth has been completely absorbed.  Stir every so often so that the rice does not stick to the bottom of the sauce pan.

Kali Orexi!!! 🙂

  3. I don’t think there are many traditional dishes with mushrooms out there. Although chickpea and rice is a common dish in southern Greece they don’t add mushroom. This recipe is way better with the mushrooms. ❣️❣️🌸🌸

      I asked around to see if this rice recipe exists in Greece, but they told me what you just said… they all basically told me that revitheia is common but not mushrooms. 🙂 It is good!!!
