Curried Couscous, Spinach, and Roasted Tomato Soup

Cooking Light
Israeli couscous is toasted semolina pasta; each grain is about half the size of a green pea. Even in hot soup, this kind of couscous retains al dente firmness for a long time.

Preheat oven to 450º.

Combine tomato wedges and oil on a baking sheet lined with foil, tossing well to coat. Bake at 450º for 15 minutes or until tender and lightly browned.

Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion, and sauté 3 minutes. Add couscous, curry, salt, and garlic; sauté for 3 minutes. Add tomato wedges and stock, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 7 minutes or until the couscous is almost tender. Stir in spinach, and cook for 2 minutes or just until spinach wilts.
