Ingredients

1 cup couscous
Israeli, or normal couscous
1 tablespoon olive oil
or any vegetable oil
1 onions
chopped
1 sweet yellow bell peppers

1 cup baby spinach

2 cloves garlic

1 ½ cups stock

Directions

Heat the oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat until hot.

Add the onions, cook until soft, about 3 minutes.

Stir in the peppers, spinach, and tomatoes, and cook for another 2 to 3 minutes until the vegetables are soft and the spinach are wilted.

Add the couscous and garlic, and stir until well mixed.

Pour the broth into the saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat to medium low.

Cover and simmer for about 10 minutes, stirring a few times, until the broth is absorbed.
