Spiced Couscous with Curry Tofu

This is a Middle-Eastern-flavored dish, which is so easy that anyone who can boil water can make it!

Many stores offer flavored tofu. If yours does not, just use regular firm tofu.

2 1/2 cups chicken broth
1/2 teaspoon curry powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup raisins
1 tablespoon dried onion flakes (I skipped this)
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
1 1/3 cups whole-grain couscous
1 pound curry-flavored tofu, diced (I actually used Szechuan and it was good)

Heat chicken broth, curry, cinnamon, raisins, onion flakes, and garlic to boiling over high heat. Add couscous and tofu; stir. Cover and let stand, unheated, 5 minutes before serving. Voila.

My only complaint about this dish is that I can't eat more of it!
