How to Make It

Step 1

Combine the first 4 ingredients, stirring with a whisk.

Step 2

Dry chickpeas thoroughly in a single layer on paper towels. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large skillet over high heat, and swirl to coat. Add chickpeas to pan, and stir-fry for 3 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove chickpeas from pan with a slotted spoon; wipe pan clean with a paper towel. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil to pan, and swirl to coat. Add bell pepper, carrots, and jalapeño to pan, and stir-fry for 2 minutes or until vegetables are slightly tender. Add cumin seeds and the next 5 ingredients (through garlic) to pan, and stir-fry for 30 seconds. Add reserved broth mixture and chickpeas. Bring to a boil, and remove from heat. Serve over couscous, and top with cilantro. Serve with lemon wedges, if desired.

Step 3

Wine Match: The light and lively Pine Ridge Chenin Blanc-Viognier 2010 ($14) pairs perfectly with this dish's bold spices. Floral aromas and a hint of sweetness temper the fiery jalapeño and red pepper. --Scott Jones
