Balsamic Tomato Couscous
      01/08/06 08:49 AM

Balsamic Tomato Couscous
(Makes 8 servings)

This is a quick and yummy way to make couscous. The balsamic vinegar gives it a great flavor. I took it to a family gathering last night and it was a big hit!

2 cups nonfat vegetable broth or nonfat chicken broth
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 1/2 cups uncooked couscous
3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 teaspoons olive oil
1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
5 small tomatoes (I only used 3 and it was plenty)

In a medium pan, bring the broth to a boil.
When it is boiling add the basil and garlic and stir. Then add the couscous, cover the pan, and remove it from the heat. Let sit 5-10 minutes.
Chop the tomatoes.
In a small bowl mix the balsamic vinegar, the oil, and the pepper. Add the tomatoes.
When the couscous is ready add the tomato mixture and mix well.
Serve hot or cold.
