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.

This was so delicious. I sauteed the vegetables in the olive oil and then added to the dish. Wonderful when hot, haven't tried it cold yet but I bet it is good. Very easy and spicy flavor. Thanks Nurse Di.

I thought this side dish was tasty, however my husband didn't care for the couscous. I forwarded the recipe to a friend whom I think will enjoy it also. Thanks!
