Coconut Curry Chickpea Rice with Skyr
This chickpea-studded rice pilaf with lime Skyr is one of those dishes that you can assemble in less than an hour with pantry and fridge staples, but doesn’t taste tossed together—the dream. Instead of chopping aromatics and scooping out spices, all you need for the one-pot pilaf is jasmine rice and a can of Heyday Coconut Curry Chickpeas. The chickpeas’ sauce provides some moisture for the rice; supplement with a bit of extra water. Stir in a package of frozen spinach, the most versatile frozen vegetable, for a bit of additional texture (a pound of any fresh torn greens will also work here, as would 1 ½ cups frozen peas). Icelandic Provisions Skyr, an Icelandic yogurt that is thicker, creamier, and higher in protein than a standard plain yogurt,, making it the ideal texture for swooshing over each bowl as a landing pad for the rice. Season the Skyr with lime zest and salt to bring out even more of its natural tang. For extra credit, top the pilaf with salted cashews and fresh cilantro.
