A friend of mine made this the other day. It was so tasty I asked for the recipe. I thought ya'll might like it too :) I'm not a huge fan of raisins, but they were good in the dish.

Couscous-Vegetable Medley


1 cup vegetable broth

1 small onion

2 medium carrot

1 can crushed tomatoes, low sodium

1 tsp. cayenne pepper

1 tsp. cumin

1 can chickpeas (garbanzo beans) low sodium, rinsed and drained

3 fresh small zucchini

1 bell pepper, green or red

4 tbsp. raisins

1 c. dry couscous

1/2 c. water

4 tbsp. sliced almonds


Rinse and chop onion, carrot, bell pepper and zucchini,into bite-sized pieces, set aside. Place all the vegetables except zucchini and bell pepper in medium saucepan with canned tomatoes and half the broth. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer for about 8-10 minutes, or until vegetables are tender (add more water if necessary). Add chickpeas, zucchini, bell pepper, raisins and spices; continue to simmer for another 5-6 minutes. In another saucepan, bring remaining broth and water to a boil. Stir in couscous, remove from heat, cover and allow to stand for about 5 minutes; stir in almonds and fluff with fork. Serve
