Couscous & Pine Nuts

1 Box Plain Couscous
1/4 Cup Pine Nuts
2 Cups Chicken Broth
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Balsamic Vinegar
  • Heat the chicken broth in a small pot until boiling. Add the couscous and remove from the heat. Let it rest for 5 or 10 minutes while you toast the pine nuts (below)
  • Put the pine nuts in a dry cast iron or stainless-steel frying pan. Cook on medium, shaking the pan very frequently, until the nuts are golden brown
  • Dump the couscous into a large warm bowl and use your hands (with gloves) to fluff it up and separate all the grains. Sprinkle the pine nuts over the top, and serve with Extra Virgin Olive Oil and good Balsamic Vinegar on the side.
