Melt the Margarine over a medium flame in a large saucepan.
Add the Almonds and cook, stirring constantly until the Almonds start to turn golden.
Add the minced Onion, and continue to cook until it turns translucent.
Pour the Chicken Broth mixture into the Almond mixture, and bring to a boil.
As soon as the combined mixtures begin to boil: pour in the Couscous and Raisins, stir, cover tightly, and remove from heat.
Allow the Pilaf to sit for 20 minutes.
