A Somewhat Vegan Dinner

I have been trying very hard to get back on track with eating healthy so last night I decided to make a somewhat vegan dinner that actually turned out really well!  I say 'somewhat vegan' because I ended up using chicken stock instead of vegetable stock.  

Couscous & Garbanzo Bean Stew 
1 cup couscous
1 can garbanzo beans
1 carton chicken (or vegetable) stock
1 onion
3 - 4 cloves of garlic
1 large sweet potato or yam
 Olive Oil

Heat the olive oil in a heavy bottom pan - chop the onion and garlic - add to the pan and cook until translucent - once cooked add the sweet potatoes/yams and allow to cook for a few minutes - add the stock, couscous and beans - bring to boil - reduce the heat and allow the mixture to simmer for about 25 minutes.   

Sauteing the onion, garlic and yams
A somewhat vegan dinner!
 The dish was super simple, healthy and pretty tasty!
Soon I will be off to Pennsylvania - hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!
