Oatmeal is very good for your heart and lowers cholesterol. Hence, oats are regular in my diet, but eating oats in a regular fashion gets quite boring, and since I like to try a variety of foods, I came up with Oats and Chickpeas Pilaf. When I thought of oats in a pilaf form I found it quite interesting and now I don’t miss rice at all. I also wanted to incorporate more protein into it, so I decided to go with garbanzo beans/chickpeas.

It's great in curries etc, but I've been taking a strong Turmeric supplement for 3 or 4 months and it's virtually eliminated my long term back and neck pain. You'd have to eat about a pound of actual Turmeric root to get the same result, so I stick to the daily pill! It really is good for you in so many ways.

Adding oats in step 2 and step 5? Is this in one pot, or 2? Adding pilaf in step 2, what does that mean?
