Artichoke's are a good source of folate, dietary fibre, vitamins C and K and are also packed with antioxidants. Chickpeas help reduce cholesterol. All that goodness and combined with this delicious dressing, we're on a winner!

Getting started
2

Cook brown rice by combining 2 cups of water with 1 cup of brown rice in a pot over high heat. When the water comes to a boil, cover the pot and turn heat down to the lowest setting for 45 minutes. (Do not stir. Simply set a timer and let the rice cook.)

3

In a bowl mix together the beans, artichoke hearts, zucchini and basil together.

4

In a separate bowl, whisk together the lemon, garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper

5

Fill individual serving bowls with rice and mixed greens. Spoon the bean mixture onto the greens and pour dressing over each bowl
