Try whole wheat couscous, instead of the traditional version, for added nutrients and a slightly nuttier flavor.


  • 1 14-ounce can reduced-sodium chicken broth or vegetable broth
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup whole-wheat couscous
  • 1-1/2 cups frozen peas
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated lemon zest
  • Salt & freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese


  1. Place the broth, water and oil into a large saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat. Add the couscous, remove from the heat, cover and let sit for 5 minutes.
  2. In the meantime, cook the peas according to package directions.
  3. Fluff the couscous with a fork and transfer to a bowl. Add the peas, dill, lemon zest and a few sprinkles of salt and pepper and gently toss to combine. Serve topped with the Parmesan cheese.
