1-2 Cups Vegetable Stock
2 Garlic Cloves, minced
2 Tbsp Olive Oil or Vegan Margerine
Garlic Powder, to taste

Salt & Pepper, to taste

1. In a saucepan bring vegetable stock to boiling point. Take off heat and add in cous cous. Stir in margerine or oil and set aside.

2. Preheat oven to ___c. Grease a baking tray and spread a layer of pumpkin pieces. Top with a sprinkle of olive oil, salt and pepper. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until crunchy.
