Couscous And Chickpea Salad

couscous salad

Most defiantly one of the simplest yet tastiest recipes I make, this delicious couscous salad its perfect for lunch or as a side dish to your main meal. I like to add two greem chillies in mine to give it that kick, but you can omit one, the choice is yours.

  • 2/3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion 
  • 2 green chillies
  • 1 cup of dried couscous
  • 1 tin of chickpeas
  • pinch of mixed curry powder 
  • pinch of turmeric
  • Salt to taste
  • Handful fresh  finely chopped coriander
  • Tomatoes 
  • Cucumber
  • Chop the onion finely and fry it in the pan with the spices and green chilli
  • Once the onions start to soften slightly add in the chickpeas, cover the pan and saute gently so enable the chickpeas to soften in the steam and oil.
  • Cook the couscous per pack instructions
  • Add the cooked couscous to the chickpeas mix and stir through
  • Allow to cool and mix in the salt and garnish with the coriander
