3 cloves garlic, minced and pressed

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup dry couscous (whole wheat if available)
1-1/2 cups water
2 small tomatoes, cut into wedges
Directions:
1 Sauté onion, garlic and green pepper in oil in a large skillet until soft, then push to sides of pan.
2 In the center of the skillet, pour in the couscous. Add the water to the couscous, stirring gently.
3 Top this mixture with tomato wedges and the cooked green peppers; cover pan for 3 minutes.
