2 tablespoons olive oil
1 pound carrots, peeled and sliced into 1/4-inch rounds
1/2 cup chicken stock
1 15-ounce can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
2 teaspoons ground cumin

In a large sauté pan, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil.

Add the chickpeas, cumin, and paprika and cook over medium heat, stirring, for 2 minutes.

Add the remaining stock and cook, uncovered, until the liquid is absorbed, 2 to 3 minutes.

Remove from heat. Add the lemon juice, onion, watercress, and the remaining olive oil and toss well. Serve warm or at room temperature.
