2 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
1 cup whole wheat instant couscous
1 tsp. canola or olive oil
10 spears asparagus, grilled or sauteed & cut into 1 inch pieces
1 large red pepper, grilled or sauteed & diced
Fresh basil to garnish, optional
In a large microwave-safe bowl, bring chicken broth to a low boil. Remove from microwave. Stir in couscous. Cover with a lid or plastic wrap. Let sit for 5 minutes to allow couscous to absorb the broth. Add oil and stir gently to fluff. Stir in asparagus and red pepper. Add basil if desired.
