Betty Tip: This recipe goes together in just minutes, thanks to whole wheat couscous, a whole grain that has already been cooked and dried. All you do is add water and veggies, heat to boiling, let stand and fluff. Now that's a real time savings!
Prep Time 20 Minutes
Start To Finish 25 Minutes
6 Servings (1 2/3 Cups Each)
Whole Grain Serving 1 1/2


• 1 tablespoon butter or margarine
• 1 large onion, chopped (1 cup)
• 1 clove garlic, finely chopped

• 2 boxes (9 oz each) frozen baby lima beans, thawed

• 1 teaspoon salt
• 1/3 cup slivered almonds, toasted

In 12-inch skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic; cook about 2 minutes, stirring occasionally, until onion is crisp-tender.
