Finely chop the garlic. Roughly chop the zucchini and baby spinach leaves. Grate the carrot (see ingredients). Drain and rinse the chickpeas. Pick and finely slice the mint leaves.


Heat a large frying pan over a medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Add the chickpeas and zucchini. Cook until the zucchini has softened, 3-4 minutes. Add the chermoula spice blend and 1/2 the garlic and cook until fragrant, 1 minute.


Add the diced tomatoes with garlic & onion, 1/2 the vegetable stock powder and the water (for the sauce). Stir to combine. Simmer until the sauce has thickened slightly, 2-4 minutes. Add the baby spinach, butter and brown sugar and stir until the spinach is wilted, 1 minute. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.


While the stew is cooking, heat a drizzle of olive oil in a medium saucepan over a medium-high heat. Add the carrot and the remaining garlic and cook until softened, 2-3 minutes. Add the water (for the couscous) and the remaining vegetable stock powder and bring to the boil. Add the couscous and currants, then stir to combine. Cover with a lid then remove from the heat. Leave until the water is absorbed, 5 minutes. Fluff up with a fork.


In a small bowl, combine the Greek-style yoghurt, 1/2 the mint and a drizzle of olive oil. Season to taste.


Divide the carrot and currant couscous between bowls and spoon over the Middle Eastern chickpea stew. Serve topped with the mint yoghurt and sprinkled with the flaked almonds and remaining mint.
