Ground Beef and Garbanzo Beans

This was a big hit with the whole family! Just some simple, filling comfort food that I found on Soak those garbanzo beans first for an easy-to-digest meal.

1 lb ground beef
1 cup chopped onion
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 (15 ounce) cans garbanzo beans (you can substitute 1 15 oz can white kernel corn for 1 can garbanzo beans if you want)
1 (15 ounce) can diced tomatoes
1/2 cup water
1 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 bay leaves

4 cups water (or beef stock)
2 cups brown rice

Cook the rice, using water or beef stock, according to the package directions.

Brown the beef in a skillet with the onions and garlic. Add the remaining ingredients (except the rice). Simmer on low heat for 30 minutes. Serve over brown rice.
