Additional information: Variation:
Substitute 1-1/2 cups broccoli florets for the celery and 1 cup quartered mushrooms for the carrots. Or you may wish to use these vegetables in addition to the celery and carrots.Enjoy!!!


  • 2/3 cup dry cous-cous
  • 2/3 cup hot water
  • one scallion
  • one can low-salt garbanzos
  • lemon-pepper seasoning


Add the hot water to the cous-cous. While you're waiting for the cous-cous to soak up the water, thin-slice the scallion. When the cous-cous is ready (about 12-15 minutes), toss garbanzo beans in the micro for about 20 seconds to heat. Drain 'em and pour the cous-cous over the garbanzos (or vice-versa), stir in the scallions, add lemon-pepper to taste (ours goes a long way), and eat!

I suspect that this would be even better with some steamed brocolli and carrots tossed in (the possibilities are endless), but this was the simplest of simple meals. I had 1/2 last night and the other half is beckoning to me from the staff room fridge.
