Ingredients
  • 300g cous cous
  • 150g Asda Three Raisin Mix
  • Zest and juice 1 lemon
  • 1tbsp rapeseed oil
  • 1 red onion, finely chopped
  • 2 x 400g tins chickpeas in water, drained and rinsed
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1tsp smoked paprika
  • 100g Asda pitted black olives, drained
  • 1 red pepper, deseeded and finely sliced
  • ½ cucumber, finely chopped
  • 30g pack flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped
  • 60g Asda Wild Rocket
Method
  • Put the cous cous and raisins in a large bowl, season with pepper then cover with boiling water, to 2cm above the level of the cous cous. Cover with a plate; set aside for 15 mins.

  • Fluff the cous cous with a fork. Mix through the lemon zest and juice.

  • Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large frying pan on a high setting. Fry the onion for 5 mins, stirring occasionally, until just softened. Add the chickpeas, garlic, paprika and 60ml water; cook for 8-10 mins, tossing often, until the liquid evaporates.

  • Stir the chickpeas into the cous cous, along with the olives, cucumber, pepper and parsley. Gently mix through the rocket, taking care not to bruise it, then serve immediately.
