Couscous and Garbanzos with Spicy Garlic Sauce

Couscous and Garbanzos with Spicy Garlic Sauce

1 onion
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 cup couscous
Chicken broth
1/4 cup olive oil
1 Tbsp paprika
2 tsp garlic
½ tsp salt
1/8 tsp cayenne
2 cups cooked garbanzos

Saute onion in 2 T olive oil. Steam couscous over chicken broth (or prepare according to package instructions, or just boil it in some chicken broth till done). While the couscous is cooking, combine 1/4 c oil (use more oil if desired) and garlic and spices. Combine warm garbanzos, onions, couscous, and sauce. I like this with plain yogurt. Serves 4.

Edited to add that I usually don't bother with the garlic sauce now. Instead, I saute the onion in the olive oil, then add the garbanzos and lots of minced garlic. Then I add salt and the prepared couscous and at least 1/2 tsp of cayenne. It's a quick and easy meal.
