1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
½ teaspoon cumin seeds
1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
2 teaspoons curry powder, preferably Madras
1 15-ounce or 19-ounce can chickpeas, rinsed
1 tomato, diced
1½ teaspoons honey
1 cup water
⅛ teaspoon salt
Freshly ground pepper, to taste
1 cup whole-wheat couscous
⅓ cup chopped fresh cilantro, or parsley
Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add cumin seeds and stir until they begin to pop, about 1 minute. Add ginger and stir until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add curry powder and stir until it is toasted, about 30 seconds longer. Add chickpeas, tomatoes, honey, water, salt and pepper; bring to a boil. Stir in couscous; remove from the heat and cover. Let stand until the liquid has been absorbed, about 5 minutes. With a fork, fluff the couscous and stir in cilantro (or parsley).
