Curried Couscous With Chickpeas

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by thepurpleturtle

This makes a great lunch or snack and is low-fat. Great for bringing to work or school and can be eaten hot or cold. I like it with Braggs sprinkled on top (but I'm known to add braggs to any rice or couscous dish for extra flavour!). Could also add some cooked chicken to make a main dish, maybe with a side green salad or additional steamed veggies.
