    Directions:

    1. 1
      Splash the olive oil into a small saucepan over a medium-high heat. Add the onion, garlic and spices. Sauté for a few minutes until everything is heated through and your kitchen smells fragrant.
    2. 2
      Add the chickpeas, couscous, raisins, apricots, orange juice, lemon zest and juice, and salt and pepper. Bring everything to a simmer and then reduce the heat to low, just enough to maintain the simmer. Cover with a tight-fitting lid and continue cooking until the couscous is tender and the liquid has been absorbed, about 15 minutes.
    3. 3
      Turn off the heat and let the couscous rest for another 5 minutes or so before serving. Using a fork to help fluff up the couscous, transfer it into a serving bowl and sprinkle with the almonds and cilantro.

      Really delicious!<br/>I prepared this recipe with one cup of very tasty fresh pressed orange juice and i substituted the couscous with bullgur as I did not have couscous at home.<br/>This came out delicious, filling but still light! A perfect side dish to any meat recipes.<br/>I imagine that this would be even very good served cold in sommer to BBC meat.<br/>Thanks a lot for this recipe!
