Using broth instead of water gives this dish added flavor without additional fat. Use this tip when cooking rice and mashed potatoes, too. It's a great way to punch up the flavor.

1 teaspoon olive oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup uncooked whole wheat couscous
1/4 cup sweetened dried cranberries
2 tablespoons pine nuts, toasted
2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
