Couscous With Garbanzo Beans and Golden Raisins

“Searched ALL 497 recipes, but did not find THIS one !! It came from a very old Bon Appetit, and the addition of cinnamon, lemon peel, and golden raisins give a Mediteranean flair. It is quick, easy, and makes a different side, if you are tired of potatoes and/or rice.”
