Add the tomatoes, orange juice and stock. Bring to a boil, season and add the hot pepper sauce.
Add the wheat semolina (couscous), stir and cover. Turn off the heat and let stand for about 5 minutes or until the semolina has absorbed nearly all the liquid. Use a fork to separate the grains if necessary. Add the chickpeas, herbs and Feta, mix well and serve immediately.
