Heat the olive oil and garlic in a large saute pan set on high heat until sizzling, about 2-3 minutes. Add the lemon zest and coriander and stir. Add the spinach. It will look like a lot of spinach when you first add it, but will wilt down quite fast, in about 2-3 minutes and begin to release its juices. Add the lemon juice, chicken stock, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil and stir in the couscous. Cover, remove from the heat and let sit for 5 minutes. Fluff the couscous with a fork and serve.
