Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    250g fresh or frozen green beans
    2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
    1 3 inch cinnamon stick, broken in half
    1 cup whole wheat couscous
    1/2 cup low-fat feta cheese, crumbled
    1 tsp olive oil
    1 medium onion, diced
    1/3 cup chopped walnuts
    2 cups chicken (or veggie) broth, low sodium
    1/3 cup raisins (optional)
    1/2 cup fresh parsely, finely chopped (optional)

Directions

Toast walnuts in a large, non-stick pot (without oil) over medium heat, 5 minutes (toasting intensifies their flavour). Transfer to a small bowl. Heat oil in same pot over medium-high heat. Add onion and cinnamon stick pieces. Stir for 2 minutes, then add sweet potatoes. Pour in broth and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat and simmer until sweet potatoes are almost tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Return to boil, add beans and cook until tender-crisp, 5 minutes. Stir in couscous and raisins, cover, remove from heat and let stand 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork, empty into a serving bowl, and sprinkle with walnuts, parsley, and feta.
