Tomato Pea Couscous

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 20 min.


4 servings

I modified a recipe I found in a magazine, keeping good nutrition in mind. With a hint of cumin and other mellow flavors, this is a quick-to-fix that's ideal with many entrees.


  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth or vegetable broth
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped seeded tomato
  • 3/4 cup uncooked couscous


  1. In a large saucepan, saute onion and garlic in oil until tender. Stir in cumin; cook and stir for 30 seconds. Stir in the broth, peas and tomato. Cook for 1-2 minutes or until peas are almost tender. Stir in couscous; cover. Remove from the heat; let stand for 5 minutes. Fluff with fork.
