How to make Couscous with Goat Cheese and Green Beans

This is a creamy, delicious dish that I created on a boring Tuesday evening.  Not so boring anymore!!

In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat.  Add garlic and shallot.  Saute for 1 minute.  Then add the green beans, thyme leaves, lemon juice, and the couscous.  Heat for about 5 minutes, constantly stirring until the couscous starts to brown.  Slowly pour in the wine while stirring.

Add the stock.  Season with salt and pepper.  Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer and cover.  Cook for about 10 minutes.  Then, add the spinach on top and cover again.  After two more minutes, remove from the heat and let stand for about 3-5 minutes.  Stir in the goat cheese until melted and serve with some fresh grated cheese.
