In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Sauté the garlic, onion, celery, pepper and beans. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes.

Add the tomatoes, orange juice and stock. Bring to a boil, season and add the hot pepper sauce.

Add the wheat semolina (couscous), stir and cover. Turn off the heat and let stand for about 5 minutes or until the semolina has absorbed nearly all the liquid. Use a fork to separate the grains if necessary. Add the chickpeas, herbs and Feta, mix well and serve immediately.


Suggestion:The Vegetarian Couscous with Feta can be served cold. Let cool before adding the Feta, and use a little olive oil and orange juice as a dressing.
