This is a glorified bean salad. I generally like bean salads but I find them too acidic (so this is a bean salad without acid). Feel free to sub any ingredient (well, except the onions, celery, garlic, and chickpeas). This salad tastes best topped with feta and fresh parsley. —Sweets

In a bowl, mix together rice, chickpeas, edamame, onions, and celery. Add the paste and the rest of the olive oil. Mix well.
Chill salad in fridge for 30 minutes. Salt to taste.
