Expert Tips

Cumin (KUH-mihn) is the dried fruit of a plant in the parsley family. Cumin is popular in Middle Eastern, Asian and Mediterranean cooking.

Baste the kabobs with 3 tablespoons of prepared vinaigrette dressing instead of the oil and vinegar mixture.

This low-fat entrée has complete protein provided by couscous and garbanzo beans, while the veggies are an excellent source of vitamins A and C.
