Ingredients:

  • 240g couscous
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground or freshly chopped coriander
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 400ml chicken stock
  • 1 tin of drained and rinsed chickpeas

  • Freshly chopped flat-leaf parsley

Method:

This chickpea and couscous dish is the perfect Springtime salad.

In a bowl, add the couscous, cumin, cinnamon and mix together.

Pour in the chicken stock and cover, allowing the couscous to absorb the stock and plump up.

Once all of the liquid has been absorbed, add in the shallots and the chickpeas and combine.

Place the couscous and chickpea mixture in a serving bowl and top with a sprinkle of pomegranate and freshly chopped parsley, coriander and a splash of lemon juice.
