Remove the tough outer skin by cut- ting around the meat of the vegetable and rotating the squash. Cut the squash in half. Remove seeds and inner pulp with a kitchen spoon. Slice the squash into pieces length-wise. Take each slice of squash and cut into chunks..
  2. Heat a medium-large saucepot over medium heat. Add 1 tablespoon olive oil, onion and garlic, cook while stirring for 2-3 minutes. Turn heat down to medium-low, add spices, salt and pepper. Cook while stirring for another 2-3 minutes. Add squash and cook 4-5 minutes while stirring. Turn heat to high. Add tomatoes, chickpeas, and 3 cups water. Bring to a boil, then turn down to medium-low, and simmer for 20-25 minutes, stirring occasionally..
  3. Add 3 cups of water and the couscous to a medium saucepot over high heat. Bring to a boil. Turn heat down to low and stir occasionally. Cook until all water is absorbed. Remove from heat, and season with salt and butter..
