Couscous Garbanzo Salad

For Jane, looking for good couscous recipes.

I enjoy couscous, the coarsely ground durum wheat variety as a change of pace.  Just made the following this last week.  

Couscous Garbanzo Salad

10 oz Couscous (about l  1/2 cup)
1 (14  1/2 oz) can vegetable stock or broth
1 tsp thyme
2 Tbs vinegar dressing
1 can (15oz) garbanzo beans, drained 
1 large or 2 med. tomatoes, seeded and chopped
3 scallions, sliced thin
1 cucumber, seeded and chopped
1 tsp basil

Bring 1 cup of the vegetable stock to a boil.  Place couscous in a large bowl, then pour the stock over it, toss and let stand.  Bring the remainder of stock to a brief simmer, add the drained garbanzo beans, thyme, and vinegar dressing.  Add the tomatoes, scallions, cucumber and basil to the bowl of couscous.  Toss lightly and then add the remainder of the stock mixture.  Toss, cover and refrigerate a few hours before serving.
