Sweet’n’Spicy Couscous ★★★★★1 review

An easy throw together lunch bursting with delicious flavours.

Serves 1 | Prep time: 2 mins | Cooking time: 7 mins


  • 1/2 cup quick-cooking wholemeal couscous
  • 1/2 cup cooked chickpeas (washed and drained)
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • 1 cup baby spinach leaves
  • 2 tsp sweet chilli sauce
  • 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1/2 cup water


  1. If you have a microwave:
    • Place everything in a microwavable dish, cover and microwave for 2 minutes.
    • Stir with a fork then let stand for a minute or two before eating.
  2. If using a stovetop:
    • Place the water in a saucepan, drizzle a little extra virgin olive oil in the water (optional), and bring to a boil.
    • Quickly add the couscous to the boiled water, stir and immediately turn the heat off. Cover and let sit for 7 minutes or until couscous has completely absorbed the water. Uncover and fluff with a fork.
    • Mix in the remaining ingredients, top with fresh herbs of your choice (optional), and serve.
