  1. Place the olive oil in a large skillet that has a matching lid.
  2. Add in the onions and fry on medium-high heat until soft and translucent, around 6-7 minutes.

  4. Add in the uncooked rice and fry for 2-3 minutes.
  5. Add in the tomatoes, chickpeas and vegetable broth.
  6. Add salt to taste (this will depend on how salty your broth is to start)
  7. Stir until all ingredients are dispersed evenly throughout the skillet.
  8. Bring to a simmer, then reduce the heat to medium and place the lid on top.
  9. Simmer for 20-22 minutes, then remove the skillet - lid still on!- and let sit for another 5-6 minutes.
  10. Remove the lid, fluff the rice, top with chopped parsley and serve.
