  • Couscous I used 2 boxes of a whole wheat couscous mix
  • Chickpeas
  • Green cabbage 1 head
  • Cauliflower 1 head
  • Frozen peas
  • If you want different veggies or to put another variety of bean or protein - just swap in what you want to use.


  • Cut up your green cabbage and cauliflower
  • Make couscous according to the directions on the package. I made two packages. Rinse your canned chickpeas and set aside (you aren't cooking or warming them up).
  • Then steam your veggies (I used cauliflower and green cabbage).
  • Then I added about 3/4 of a package of frozen peas to the pot that you're steaming the veggies in.
  • As soon as the vegetables are soft, drain and add them to the couscous.
  • Top with chickpeas and sprinkle a little parsley on top.
  • Serve!
