Cranberry Couscous

MckMama posted a recipe that sounds really interesting. I haven't made couscous in months, and this definitely peaked my interest.

2 cups instant couscous
1 cup dried cranberries (or raisins)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (or toasted halved almonds)
2 teaspoons white onion, very finely chopped
1 32 oz. can chicken broth
dash salt
dash black pepper

In a medium bowl, combine couscous, dried cranberries, onions, salt and pepper.

Bring chicken broth to a boil. Pour in couscous mixture. Allow to sit, covered, for 10 minutes, or until the couscous has absorbed all the broth.

Once broth has been absorbed, fluff with a fork. Sprinkle chopped walnuts over couscous. Serve immediately.
