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!
