Hearty Cous Cous

I used Israeli cous cous (larger than Moroccan cous cous), but any type cous cous would work, as would quinoa or even barley. No fat and high in protein and fiber, this makes a healthy, tasty side dish.

1 and 1/2 cups dry Cous cous, or specialty grain
Beef, chicken or vegetable stock (follow package directions for quantity)
3 green onions, sliced
1 can pinto beans, drained
1/2 cup toasted pine nuts

Cook cous cous or grain according to package directions, replacing the water with stock. 2 minutes before the cous cous is done, toss in the green onions, beans and pine nuts, stir, cover and allow to finish cooking. Serve at once.

Makes 4-6 servings
