Yes, again, I was walking down the aisles at Trader Joe’s and I catch a product that I’ve never seen before; Organic Chickpea and Red Lentil RISONI. As the box indicates, it’s a legume-based grain alternative, nice to use instead of rice. So I picked a box and went home. Once at home, I decided to cook it my own way and the end result was very tasty, smile. Therefore, these are my ingredients.
