Chickpea, Spinach and Tomato Couscous
30 mins (prep 10, cooking 20)
13 ingredients
2-3 servings
I adapted pinkcherryblossom's great recipe for spinach and chickpea curry to make this tasty vegetarian couscous. I changed the combination of spices a bit and substituted canned tomatoes for fresh ones. It's very flavorful and filling but light at the same time. I use Near East couscous mix for the grain: it's ready in 5 minutes as opposed to real couscous which is very long to make. If you don't use spinach in the recipe, you might want to add a little water in step 3. You may also add other vegetables, such as carrot, squash, eggplant or potatoes. Boil or steam them aldente separately and add them in step 3. This makes a perfect vegetarian entree that you can serve along with a mediteranean salad (tomato and cucumber with olive oil and lemon dressing) or simply by itself.
