I made this the first time for a potluck: fewer people than expected showed up, but I still went home with an empty dish. Quick, cheap, and easy- a good way to clean out the pantry. Peas would probably be good instead of edamame, too.
- 3 teaspoons olive oil
- 1 cup shelled edamame
- 1⁄2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
- 4 medium garlic cloves, minced
- 2 1⁄4 cups water, divided
- 1⁄4 cup chopped fresh basil
- 1 (14 1/2 ounce) can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
- 1 (14 1/2 ounce) can diced tomatoes
- 3⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup uncooked couscous
- 2 cups coarsely chopped green onions
- 1 cup crumbled feta cheese
