Add in all of the seasonings and fry until fragrant, for about a minute. Add the frozen peas and chickpeas, cooking briefly. Then add enough vegetable stock to cover everything, about a cup and a half. Scrape any brown bits off the bottom of the pan.

Add a cup of instant couscous. Stir and remove from heat, letting stand for five minutes or until the liquid is absorbed. Fluff with a fork and serve!
