Fast and easy and delicious. No one will believe this started out as a box mix.
1 box of Near East Tomato Couscous
1 can diced tomatoes (I used the onion and garlic flavored) 1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 15 oz. can garbanzo beans
1/2 cup toasted slivered almonds
Prepare the couscous according to the directions on the box. Meanwhile, in a small pan heat the tomatoes, garlic and chickpeas to boiling, about 5 minutes. Cool slightly and then add the tomato mixture and the toasted almonds to the cooked couscous mix well. Let rest of 5 minutes, fluff with fork, and serve. .
