This is a super fast, ridiculously easy side dish. Toasting the almonds brings out their nuttiness and adds a great crunch to the tiny pearls of pasta. Make this dish when you want something quick or when you want to switch up your usual side dish.

Recipe by Meal Planning 101

Serves 4

1 1/4 cup chicken broth
1 cup cous cous
1/4 cup slivered almonds

In a small saucepan, bring the chicken broth to a boil. Once boiling, stir in the cous cous and a pinch of salt, add a lid and remove from the heat. Let sit for 5 minutes. While the cous cous is standing, place the almonds in a dry frying pan over medium low heat and toast them until fragrant and lightly browned. Keep them moving in the pan so they don't burn. Once toasted add to the cous cous and fluff with a fork. Serve.
