Carrie's Couscous

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Miss Erin C.

My best friend made a dish similar to this and I thought it was just amazing! Really easy, very good. I'm pretty sure she didn't use chicken broth, you could simply use water or even vegetble broth if you wanted.

It was very yummy! I used an 8 ounce can of diced tomatoes (since you didn't specify)....but I made a slight error in the prep. I added the vegetable broth to the sauted onions/garlic and cooked the couscous in that. I added the drained tomatoes and layered the mixture according to the recipe. Next time I will follow the recipe exactly...there WILL be a next time! Everyone enjoyed it :)
