As the veggies are cooking, boil 1 cup of water. Add the smoked paprika, granulated garlic, 1/4 tsp salt and 1 tbl of olive oil to the water. Once water is boiling, remove from the heat and stir in 1 1/4 cups of couscous. Return the lid and let sit for 2 min. Fluff with a fork and add 1 tbl of olive oil, chopped basil and pumpkin seeds.
Last but not least, toast the chickpeas on high heat in a santé pan with 1/2 tsp of turmeric and 1 tbl of olive oil for 5 min while frequently stirring.
Now time to build the bowl! Place couscous on the bottom, add the veggies, chickpeas, garnish with more basil and salt and pepper.
