Couscous with Chickpeas and Carrots

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2011
After making it, I wasn't all that pleased, but I still like the general idea of the recipe. It was very quick and easy to make and it's easy to add other vegetables that you might have on hand. I actually made a couple of changes (used vegetable broth and added half a chopped green pepper and a diced medium tomato). The tomato added a significant amount of moisture, but it was still really dry in the end. Making this again, I would probably use less couscous and more vegetables. I agree with another reviewer that the parsley should probably not be optional and adding some other herbs and/or spices could give it a boost. I had a lot left over (because it wasn't so well-received) and I ate some the next day, reheated with some leftover tomato soup drizzled over the top. This added moisture and some flavor and was actually pretty good!
