  1. For the rice: Bring 4 cups water to a boil in a medium saucepot. Add the basmati, flax seeds, onions, garlic and salt. Cover, reduce the heat to low, and cook until the rice is tender and has absorbed all of the liquid, 15 to 20 minutes. (If using a rice cooker, combine the ingredients in the rice cooker, stir, and cook according to manufacturer's instructions.)
  2. For the beans: Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add the onions and saute until softened and translucent, about 3 minutes. Add the garlic and saute for 2 minutes. Add the garbanzo beans, thyme and chicken broth. Turn the heat down to low and cook until the flavors have melded and the liquid has reduced by half, about 5 minutes.
  3. Transfer the rice to a large mixing bowl. Add the garbanzo bean mixture and mix to combine. Serve immediately.
