Quick side note: I had just got back from a run when I made this so I wasn't really feeling like doing a ton of dishes. Because of this, I didn't actually measure any of the ingredients used-the following are plain guess-timates.
2/3 box of couscous
1 cube of vegetable bouillon plus 2 cups boiling water
2 tablespoons olive oil
ground cumin, to taste (I used a lot)
1/2 roma tomato, cubed
2/3 cup canned chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1/2 cup frozen spinach
1. Pour 2/3 box of dry couscous in a large bowl.
2. Boil 2 cups of water and add 1 cube of vegetable bouillon. Stir until cube is completely dissolved.
3. Once bouillon cube is completely dissolved, add about 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Continue stirring while you add ground cumin. I wouldn't add too much to begin with-you can always add more later! :)
4. Stir in chickpeas and tomato. Let the mixture sit for a 2-3 minutes while you struggle to break off some frozen spinach.
5. Stir in the frozen spinach. I didn't defrost the spinach beforehand because the boiling mixture broke it down almost immediately. That and defrosting actually requires planning ahead.
6. Once spinach is cooked and well incorporated, pour the boiling mixture over your dry couscous. Cover with plastic wrap and let sit for 10 minutes.
Don't judge me for actually watching the couscous absorb the liquid. It's cool!
Remove the plastic wrap, stir, and enjoy-I chose to do so with a big cup of my favorite tea!
