½ red pepper, diced
¼ red onion, diced
1 cup canned chickpeas, rinsed and drained

Boil stock and pour over the couscous with the raisins in a bowl. Cover to seal in the steam and let sit for 5 minutes.

Mix together oil, lemon juice, garlic, spices, and salt.

Fluff the couscous with a fork to separate the grains and stir through the carrot, red pepper, onion, chickpeas and parsley.

Pour the couscous into the dressing and toss together until well combined.
