Kind of a random idea... those happen sometimes:
Cook some brown rice in a copious amount of chicken stock, then drain it.
Meanwhile cut some merguez into chunks and brown it nicely. Add diced carrot, onion, and chopped garlic and let cook until the onion softens. Add crushed tomatoes, sweet paprika, rosemary, lemon balm, and thyme and let simmer 10-15 minutes. Serve over the rice.
