Couscous and Garbanzo Recipe

Couscous is a very healthy grain and can be fairly bland unless bold flavors and fresh vegetables are added to bring out the best in it. As you know I love fresh, bold flavorswhich makes Couscous a very important ingredient in my kitchen to play around with. I think you will enjoy making this recipe because it is simple, delicious, quick and healthy. 

2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 2inch Cinnamon Stick
2 Bay Leaves
1 Cup green onions, chopped
1 Jalepeño, chopped
1 Teaspoon White Jasmine Sajji Masala
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1/2 Cup cilantro, chopped
1 Red pepper, chopped
1 8oz can garbanzo beans
2 Cups uncooked Couscous
2 Cups warm water

Heat olive oil in a saucepan, add cinnamon and bay leaves. Add green onions. Add cilantro and jalapeno.  Add garbanzo beans and red pepper. Add couscous, salt and Sajji Masala, stir everything together. Add water. Cover the saucepan and turn off the heat. After about 15 minutes, fluff the couscous with a fork. Serve with an entree.
