1/2 cup water
1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
Ground black pepper

2. When foaming subsides, add couscous and cook (for about 5 minutes) stirring frequently, until grains are just beginning to brown.

3. Add water, broth; stir briefly to combine, cover, and remove pan from heat.

4. Let stand until grains are tender (for about 7 minutes).

5. Remove lid and fluff grains with fork. Season with pepper to taste and serve.
