Roasted Asparagus-and-
Hazelnut Couscous

Yield Makes 6 servings
This makes a beautiful presentation alongside roast chicken or pork.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound fresh asparagus
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 (14.5-ounce) can fat-free roasted garlic-seasoned chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
  • 1 cup couscous, uncooked
  • 1/3 cup chopped hazelnuts or pecans, toasted
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

How to Make It

  1. Snap off tough ends of asparagus, and cut into 1-inch pieces. Place in a 13- x 9-inch roasting pan. Drizzle with oil, tossing to coat.

  2. Bake at 450° for 8 to 10 minutes or just until asparagus is tender. Set aside, and keep warm.

  3. Bring broth and Italian seasoning to a boil over medium-high heat. Stir in couscous; cover, remove from heat, and let stand 10 minutes.

  4. Add asparagus and hazelnuts to couscous, and toss. Stir in salt and pepper.
