  • 1 (15 ounce) can pineapple chunks, drained (juice reserved)

  • 1 cup couscous

  • 1 (15 ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained

  • cup warm water

  1. Combine 1/2 cup water and reserved pineapple juice in a saucepan over medium-low heat; bring to a boil and immediately remove from heat. Stir couscous into the liquid to coat. Set aside until the liquid is absorbed and the couscous is tender, about 5 minutes; fluff with a fork. Divide onto 2 plates.
