  • 1 (7 oz.) canned chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 8 to 10 oil cured black olives, pitted and chopped

This recipe was developed for Zojirushi rice cooker models listed here. Adjustments may be necessary when using other models.

1

Measure the rice accurately using the measuring cup that came with your rice cooker. Rinse quickly once, drain and place in the inner cooking pan.

 

2

Add water to water level marked "1" for "Brown Rice", salt and stir well with rice using the rice spatula. Cook the rice using the “Brown Rice” setting.

 

3

While rice cooks, combine remaining ingredients in a large bowl. This may be done several hours in advance.

 

4

When rice completes cooking, gently fluff the rice with rice spatula, and spread out onto a large plate. This may be made ahead and refrigerated as much as a day ahead.

 

5

When rice cools, add orange and onion mixture and toss gently. Be careful not to over stir the rice, it may become gluey.
