Ep. 134 – Rice with Chickpea and Lemon

Or how I destroyed the rice. With a pinterest-inspired vegan recipe – yeeess, I saved several on a Greek sunny day outside. :))) Well, I might be a disaster, but I can’t stand the dishes where the rice is boiled until the grain is gone. Like the traditional pilaf – is a big no-no. 🙂
