Ingredients

Couscous

  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable-flavor instant bouillon
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 (15-oz.) can garbanzo beans or Progresso™ Chickpeas, drained, rinsed
  • 1 cup uncooked couscous

Kabobs

  • 8 fresh whole mushrooms
  • 2 medium zucchini, cut into 1-inch-thick slices
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1/2 small red onion, cut into 8 wedges
  • 2 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt

Steps

  • 1
    In medium saucepan, combine all couscous ingredients except couscous. Bring to a boil. Remove from heat; stir in couscous. Cover; let stand while broiling kabobs.
  • 2
    Meanwhile, spray broiler pan with nonstick cooking spray. Thread mushrooms, zucchini, bell pepper and onion onto four 12-inch metal skewers. Place on sprayed pan.
  • 3
    In small bowl, combine oil, vinegar and garlic salt; mix well. Brush over kabobs.
  • 4
    Broil 4 to 6 inches from heat for 10 to 12 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender, turning once halfway through cooking. Fluff couscous with fork; serve with kabobs.

  • 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.
