You hungry? Get there, cause this is good. I found a way to a man's heart. It's couscous. I've recently come up with a great way to use all the left-over veggies in my fridge! As we all know (lol, yeah right), couscous is not grain, but rather tiny balls of pasta. Pasta pretty much always = delicious (yeah, you did know that). I find this a great go-to side because it's ready to eat in about 15 minutes and you can throw just about any veggie in and end up with something wonderful. I use whole wheat couscous, but that's up to you.
What you need:
1 tsp. olive oil or butter
1 c. whole wheat couscous
1 1/3 c. broth or water
1 clove minced garlic
1/2 yellow onion (or 2 medium sized shallots) diced
salt n' peppa
veggies of your choice
I usually use: asparagus, peas, corn, bell peppers, edamame (or any mix of these)
How you do it:
In a medium sized pot, satay your onions and garlic in the oil over medium heat for about 3 minutes, throw in your veggies, let them soften a bit (5 ish minutes), add your broth. Bring to a rolling boil and take off heat. Add your couscous, stir and let sit for 5 minutes. You're done. Eat your heart out.
Yes it really is that easy.
