curried couscous with peas and carrots

I love to eat whole grains but they whole can get rather boring after a while.  This was a really nice way to add a little more flavor and complimented our grilled steak quite well.

curried couscous with peas and carrots (cookbook by Robin Miller)
1 1/2 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
1 teaspoon curry powder
1 cup couscous (I used whole grain)
1 1/2 cups mixed frozen peas and carrots
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
salt and freshly ground black pepper

Combine the broth and curry in a small saucepan and bring to a boil.  Add the couscous and peas and carrots and stir to combine.  Remove from the heat, cover and let stand until the liquid is absorbed, about 5 minutes.  Fluff the couscous with a fork and fold in the cilantro.  Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve.
