Couscous With Black Beans


Serves: 6

Prep Time: 3 minutes

Cooking Time: 6 minutes

Difficulty: Easy

Comments

This has a southwest flare and is a quick and simple side dish. It goes well with dishes you might also serve with rice but cooks up quicker than most rice.

Ingredients

1 cup couscous, dry

1 1/4 cup vegetable broth, reduced sodium

2 teaspoons butter

1 tablespoon garlic, bottled minced

1/2 onion(s), medium, chopped

2 tomato(es), Roma, chopped

1 can (15 ounces each) black beans, reduced sodium, drained and rinsed

1 teaspoon cumin, ground

1/2 teaspoon chili powder

1/4 cup cilantro, fresh

Preparation

In a medium saucepan, melt butter over medium high heat. Add onions and garlic and stir, cook for about 30 seconds. Add broth, tomatoes, cumin, chili powder and black beans and bring to a boil. When the water is boiling, add the couscous and remove from the heat. Stir and then cover and let sit for 5 minutes. Fluff it up with a fork before serving. Garnish with cilantro.
