Here is how I prepare this: Dice some yellow or white onion and stir fry it in a pan with the olive oil, garlic, and the rest of the veggies (I use whatever veggies I have in my fridge I need to use up). Then add the broth, tomatoes, and spices and bring to a boil. Then add the couscous and the kidney beans and let it sit until the couscous is ready. Sprinkle with a little cheese (cheddar is good) and serve. This is awesome for camping.
