Garden veggie couscous (serves ~1)

We have a refrigerator full of veggies from various gardens so we’ve been experimenting new recipes. I love couscous so this one made my day! I’m sure it would be good with shrimp or just cheese on top but I like to make my dishes vegan and leave the toppings to you! Hope you enjoy!


1/2 cup water

1/3 cup uncooked plain couscous

2 tbsp. olive oil 

1/2 tsp. minced garlic

1 tsp. lemon juice

1/2 cup of chopped baby tomatoes

1/2 cup of chopped yellow squash

1/2 cup of chopped green bell pepper

a pinch of ground black pepper

pinch of basil

a pinch of salt 

and a pinch of parsley


1. First, prepare the couscous! Bring the 1/3 cup of water to a boil and stir in the 1/2 cup of couscous. Let stand for 5 minutes and fluff with a fork.

2. Next, sauté the veggies, garlic, lemon and spices in a pan until the veggies become soft.

3. Lay the veggies over the couscous for a delicious combination of garden flavors!
