Chickpea-Powered Couscous

with Zucchini and Grape Tomatoes

You haven’t tasted chickpeas until you’ve tried them roasted. Trust us, the delicious crunch is absolutely worth the time they spend in a hot oven. In this recipe, they’re tossed with bubbly Israeli couscous, roasted veggies, and smoked paprika for a mishmash of savory Mediterranean flavors. You likely won’t have leftovers, but if you do, they’ll taste even better the next day.

Baking Sheet
Paper Towel
Medium Pot



Adjust racks to middle and top positions and preheat oven to 425 degrees. Wash and dry all produce. Trim and dice zucchini into ½-inch pieces. Halve tomatoes. Strip thyme leaves from stems. Peel and mince garlic. Trim and thinly slice scallions, separating whites from greens. Halve lemon.

Roast Veggies

Toss zucchini, tomatoes, and half the thyme leaves on a baking sheet with a large drizzle of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Roast on middle rack, tossing halfway through, until tender, 15-20 minutes.

Roast Chickpeas

Meanwhile, drain and rinse chickpeas. Pat as dry as possible with paper towels. On a second baking sheet, toss half the chickpeas (all the chickpeas for 4 servings) with paprika, a large drizzle of olive oil, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Roast on top rack, tossing halfway through, until crisp, 18-20 minutes. TIP: It’s natural for the chickpeas to pop a bit.

Toast Couscous

While chickpeas roast, heat 1 TBSP butter (2 TBSP for 4 servings), garlic, and scallion whites in a medium pot over medium-high heat; cook until butter has melted and garlic is fragrant, 1 minute. Add couscous and remaining thyme leaves; stir to coat. Season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring, until couscous is lightly toasted, 2-3 minutes.

Cook Couscous

Add stock concentrate and ¾ cup water (1½ cups for 4 servings) to pot with couscous. Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce heat to low. Cook until couscous is tender, 6-8 minutes. Drain any excess liquid, if necessary. Keep covered off heat.

Finish and Serve

Add half the veggies, half the feta, and a squeeze of lemon juice to pot with couscous; stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper. Divide between plates; top with crispy chickpeas and remaining veggies. Garnish with scallion greens and remaining feta. Serve.
