Spicy Couscous with Chickpeas

This dish comes straight to us from Algeria. Traditionally, couscous is steamed two or three times in a steamer called a kiska. The couscous available in supermarkets is pre-steamed and dried so only needs liquid to absorb and is ready in a few minutes.

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 onion, sliced thin
  • 2 carrots, sliced diagnolly
  • 1 cup diced tomatoes
  • 1/4 teaspoon of turmeric, cumin and cinnamon
  • 1 cup cooked chickpeas
  • 2 scallions, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon chopped chilies
  • 2 cups uncooked couscous
  • 3 cups vegetable broth
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley

Instructions

  1. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Saute onion, carrots and tomatoes, stirring until soft but not brown, about 5 minutes. Add up to 1/3 cup of water if necessary. Add spices and cook 1 minute. Add chickpeas, scallions, chilies, couscous and broth. Stir together and bring to a boil. Cover and remove from heat. Let stand until liquid is absorbed, about 5 minutes. Add parsley and salt and pepper to taste. Fluff with a fork before serving.
  2. Makes 4 servings.
