quick, tasty and easy
I added a couple of handfuls of steamed green beans, and served with a tomato salad

Nice recipe. I added some dried porcini mushrooms to both the cous cous stock, and the chicken stock in the recipe. It added a nice meaty earthy taste.
Also subsituted 1/2 tsp pimenton for half the paprika, to add a nice smokiness, and added a quick shake (1/4tsp) chilli powder for some extra zing.
Simmered the chick peas in the stock for 3/4 mns before adding the chorizo to reduce the liquor a bit more.

Delicious.

I added some chilli to the couscous and some thinly sliced mushrooms and aubergine when frying the onion. a really good quick and easy lunch.

Delicious and really simple. Didn't use vegetable stock in cous cous and next time will add some chilli.
