Tomato Couscous with Chickpeas

What you need: 

1 box of Near East Tomato Couscous
1 can diced tomatoes (I used the onion and garlic flavored)
1 can garbanzo beans

What you do: 

Prepare the couscous according to the directions on the box.
Meanwhile, in a small pan heat the tomatoes and chickpeas to boiling, about 5 minutes.
Add to the cooked couscous, mix well. Let rest of 5 minutes, fluff with fork, and serve.
I came up with this in the grocery store while looking for something quick to make. I was surprised by how good it was, and I can't wait to make it again.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

I tired to keep the ratio of tomato to chic pea the same as in the recipe but used my own tomatoes and chic peas I had previously cooked. Also I tripled the recipe and used generic regular couscous. I added most of a very large sweet onion, three or four cloves garlic, some apple cider vinegar and salt and pepper. I liked it and will free a bunch for later. Over all pretty quick and easy.

also, i diced up about half an onion, two cloves of garlic and two medium sized tomatoes instead of using the canned stuff. i sauteed those together until the onions were translucent (make sure not to brown the garlic!) and then added veggie stock, fresh basil and couscous. so simple and so good

i followed your "directions" on here, sliced a tomato, 3 gloves of garlic, i onion sliced - but i used the regular couscous, and i added some tumeric spice and a tiny bit of cinnamon to it. ( to give it a real middle eastern taste ).
cinnamon is used in a lot of " moroccan dishes " - and tastes soooo good!
