Couscous Chickpea Paprika Salad

Two weeks ago I randomly came up with this recipe for dinner and I absolutely loved its simplicity and the amazing taste! This dish is so quick, easy and filling! It’s perfect for lunch or dinner and you don’t have to feel super guilty if you eat a little too much of it 😉

The Ingredients

Coucous (or quinoa)

Spinach (frozen)

Paprika (Pepper)





Vegetable broth 


The Preparation

Cut up all your veggies, preheat oven and oil a tin, put in the paprika and season to taste, grill for about 30 minutes. With some oil, caramelise the garlic together with some salt and chili. When they turn golden add the rest of the paprika and spinach, mine was frozen so it needed more time to cook. Add in the vegetable broth with around 250 ml of boiled water and add the chickpeas. Let simmer for 5 minutes before adding in the couscous, take the pan off of the heat and start stirring. When the water is soaked up, put the pan back on the stove and stir couscous with a fork to make more fluffy. Serve the couscous together with the grilled paprika and enjoy!
