Chop all veggies into small pieces, add to pan.
In a measuring cup, add basil, maple syrup, and water. Mix then add to veggies.
Cook covered on medium low heat until veggies reach your desired tenderness.
Put chickpeas and rice in pan.
In a measuring cup, add garlic, water, lemon juice, oregano, pepper and salt. Mix then add to rice/bean mix.
Bring to a simmer. Allow to simmer until the majority of liquid is gone.
Add the bean/rice mixture to veggies.
It was delicious. Because of its lighter flavor, it's a nice change from more heavily spiced dishes. I think it would be great in the summer.
