dry couscous
1 c

1 clove
garlic, minced
1/2
onion, minced

grated parmesan cheese

Directions Step-By-Step

Melt butter in a saucepan on medium heat. Add garlic and onions and saute until soft. Add chicken stock and bring to a boil. Add couscous. Cover and remove from heat. Let stand for five minutes, then fluff with a fork.
