This week's edition of the 'what's in the fridge?' game, I used an assortment of vegetables and a box of couscous I had in the cupboard. It's only lightly seasoned but the chicken broth and tomatoes add to the flavor. The chickpeas are used for protein and the couscous helps bind the dish together to make a complete meal out of the odds and ends I had left in the fridge.
