Wildtree Wednesday


I love chickpeas and couscous so I am anxious to try this new recipe.

Mediterranean Chickpea and Couscous Salad


1 ¼ cup water
2 teaspoons Wildtree Chicken or Vegetable Bouillon Soup Base
1 cup couscous
¼ cup currants
2 tablespoons Wildtree Natural Grapeseed Oil
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 ½ tablespoons Wildtree Tzatziki Seasoning Blend
1 large carrot, grated
½ cup diced cucumber
1 small tomato, seeded and diced
1 small red onion, diced
1 small red bell pepper, diced
1 (15.5 ounce) can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
2 tablespoons chopped parsley

Bring water to a boil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir in Bouillon, couscous, and currants, turn
off heat, cover and steam for five minutes. In a small bowl mix together Grapeseed Oil, lemon juice, and Tzatziki;
set aside. Fluff couscous with a fork. Combine couscous, and the remaining ingredients in a large bowl. Pour the
dressing over the couscous mixture and toss well to combine.
