Mediterranean Couscous & Beans

Spring is one of my favorite times of the year. Grass is turning green, trees are alive with buds and birds. Children are out and playing. It's time to dust that patio furniture off and kick back with some friends and have some good food. Here is a great spring/summer recipe I'm sure you'll love.


3 cups vegetable or chick broth
2 cups uncooked couscous
½ cup raisins or currants
¼ teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
1 small tomato, chopped (½ cup)
1 can chick peas, drained, rinsed
1/3 cup crumbled feta cheese


1. Heat broth to boiling in 3-qt saucepan. Stir in remaining ingredients except cheese; remove from heat.
2. Cover and let stand about 5 min or until liquid is absorbed; stir gently. Sprinkle each serving with cheese

This is also good served at room temp or chilled.
