  • For the couscous cakes:
  • 3/4 cup couscous
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 large clove garlic, peeled
  • 1/4 cup packed fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves
  • 1/2 cup canned chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • Finely grated zest of 1 medium lemon (about 1-1/2 tsp.)
  • 3 Tbs. vegetable or canola oil
  • -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  • Make the couscous cakes:
  • Put the couscous and 1 tsp. salt in a medium bowl. Add 1 cup boiling water to the couscous, cover the bowl with a pan lid or plate, and let sit for 4 to 5 minutes.
  • Coarsely chop the garlic in a food processor. Add the parsley and pulse until finely chopped. Add the chickpeas and 1 tsp. salt and pulse until coarsely chopped.
  • Uncover the couscous and fluff with a fork. Stir in the chickpea mixture, eggs, and lemon zest until well combined. Press the couscous mixture into a 1/4-cup measure, smooth the top, and invert the measuring cup to release the cake onto a plate. Repeat with the remaining couscous mixture to make 9 cakes.
  • Heat 1-1/2 Tbs. of the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat until shimmering hot. Add 5 of the couscous cakes to the skillet and use a spatula to lightly flatten the cakes so they’re about 3/4 inch thick. Cook, flipping once, until crisp and golden brown on both sides, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate. Add the remaining 1-1/2 Tbs. vegetable oil to the skillet and cook the remaining cakes the same way

    I love anything with a crisp exterior and cream/gooey/ or soft interior. Never had this with cous cous before! Looks good. Thanks for sharing.
