Got the idea from a recipe in Vegetarian TImes.
15 oz. can stewed tomatoes (for ex., Smith's brand with green peppers, onions & celery)
cup of black pitted olives, thinly sliced
TBSP garlic and onion powder (each)
tsp. white pepper
1. Put all the ingredients except the couscous and olives in a saucepan; bring to a boil. 2. Add couscous and stir; remove from heat and cover. 3. Let stand for 5 minutes. 4. Stir in olives and serve.
