Cranberry Couscous


           These Flavors work so well together. A bit salty and a but sweet and perfect for a
          week day lunch with friends. I found myself eating this every time I walked into the
          kitchen. I could not get enough of it. It was so good that I made it twice this week.

                                                                  Cranberry Couscous

              1 box plain couscous
              2 cups chicken broth or vegetable broth
              1/2 teaspoon salt
              1 tablespoon olive oil or butter
              5 ounce bag dried cranberries
              2 green onions
              1 lemon, juiced
              2 ounces crumbled feta
              pine nuts, toasted

         1) In a medium saucepan, bring broth, salt and butter to a boil.
         2) Stir in Couscous, cover
         3)Remove from heat, let stand 5 minutes and fluff with a fork.
         4) Add lemon, cranberries, pine nuts, green onions, and feta.

          Note, to toast pine nuts all you need to do is get a small saucepan with no oil,
          on medium heat and constantly toss until golden.
