Look for garam masala--an Indian blend--in the spice aisle; Spice Islands and McCormick make it.
1 (3.5-ounce) bag boil-in-bag basmati or brown rice
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 large onion, diced
1 1/2 teaspoons garam masala
2 (15-ounce) cans chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1 (15-ounce) can unsalted crushed tomatoes
1 (6-ounce) package fresh baby spinach
1/2 cup plain 2% Greek yogurt
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
How to Make It
Cook rice according to package directions; drain.
While rice cooks, heat a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add onion; sauté 5 minutes or until tender, stirring frequently. Stir in garam masala; cook 30 seconds, stirring constantly. Add chickpeas, tomatoes, and spinach; cook 2 minutes or until spinach wilts, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; stir in yogurt and salt. Sprinkle with cilantro. Serve over rice.
