Ingredients

  1. Check 1 10-ounce box couscous
  2. Check 1/2 cup pine nuts
  3. Check 3 tablespoons olive oil
  4. Check 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  5. Check 1 15.5-ounce can chickpeas, rinsed
  6. Check 1/2 cup raisins (dark or golden)
  7. Check 2 bunches Swiss chard, stems trimmed
  8. Check 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  9. Check 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Directions

  1. Place the couscous in a bowl. Add 1 ½ cups boiling water and stir. Cover tightly and let stand for 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, over low heat, toast the pine nuts, shaking the pan frequently, until golden, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
  3. Return the skillet to medium heat, add the oil, and heat for 1 minute. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute.
  4. Add the chickpeas, raisins, chard, salt, and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the chard is tender, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
  5. Fluff the couscous with a fork and divide among individual plates. Top with the chard and sprinkle with the pine nuts.
