Fresh cranberries

4 cup(s), fresh

Uncooked whole wheat couscous

10 oz

Fat free chicken broth

2 cup(s), or vegetable broth

Olive oil

2 tsp(s)


1 medium, sweet, chopped


3 stalk(s), medium, diced

Raw sage

oz, minced (use 6 whole leaves)

Cooking spray

1 spray(s), (5 one-second sprays per serving)


  1. Place cranberries in a large pot of water; boil until most have popped, about 5 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, prepare couscous according to package directions using broth instead of water.
  3. In a large skillet, heat olive oil over high heat. Add onion, celery and sage and stir-fry until onion is tender but not brown, about 5 minutes. Remove skillet from heat; add couscous and cranberries to skillet and stir until well mixed.
  4. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Coat a 1-quart casserole dish with cooking spray. Spoon couscous mixture into dish and bake for 30 minutes. Yields about 1 heaping cup per serving. (Note: You can prepare the stuffing the day before until the point of baking and simply finish it off while the turkey’s roasting.)
