Spiced Couscous

This recipe was wonderful when served with the Poached Chicken Breasts with Gingered Applesauce.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Bring the broth, cider, oil, pepper, allspice and salt to a boil in a medium saucepan over high heat.
  2. Stir in the couscous and bring to a boil again.
  3. Reduce the heat to low, cover the pan and cook for 2 minutes, or until all the liquid has been absorbed.
  4. Remove from the heat. Fluff with a fork. Cover and allow to stand for 5 minutes.
  5. Note: recipe from Jeanne Jones' Healthy Cooking.

I'll give this a try, but will substitute quinoa for the couscous (wheat allergy). Sounds really yummy!

5 Points Per Serving. I served this with Poached Chicken Breasts with Gingered Applesauce, so I used sesame oil instead of the olive oil (to carry over the same flavors). Frankly since it's more flavored (and more expensive!) I only used a teaspoon, which reduces the points to 4 per serving.
