Moroccan couscous salad with chickpeas and rucola


I just wanted to share this recipe for a beautiful Moroccan couscous salad, with chickpeas and rucola. Healthy, filling and great with flatbread or pita and a light soup to keep you warm in the winter. Definitely makes me think of warmer times due to it’s North African/Middle Eastern influences.

Thanks to my friend Annika for the inspiration!


Ingredients (for 3-4 people)

  • 500 gr couscous
  • 75 gr. rucola
  • 200 gr chickpeas (canned)
  • 250 gr cherry tomatoes
  • 50 gr sun dried tomatoes
  • ½ large cucumber
  • 1 avocado
  • 15 gr coriander
  • Olive oil
  • Half a lemon
  • Salt, black pepper
  • Grinded turmeric, curry and paprika powder

I’m not going to give an explanation on how to make this. If I can make it, anyone can! Cut, mix and match. Add salt, pepper and spices according to your taste! It should end up looking something like this:



Enjoy! 🙂
