Veggies and Couscous

This is an incredibly quick and easy dish to make. Kids love it, although the little Couscous pasta can be slightly messy.


1 cup Couscous

1 ¼ cup water

2 cloves garlic

1 tablespoon butter

½ teaspoon onion powder

¼ teaspoon pepper

½ teaspoon salt

1 cup veggies

1 cup Parmesan (Real Parmesan not the Kraft stuff)

Steam veggies or add them with the garlic and saute. Finely grate the Parmesan cheese. Sauté garlic in butter add water, veggies, and spices and bring to a boil. Add couscous, cover and remove from heat. Let sit 5 min add Parmesan and mix.

Some veggies to try- broccoli, peas, bell peppers, onion, carrots, squash, zucchini, green onions, celery, acorn squash, raisins

Experiment with adding your favorite spices and herbs or other cheeses like Ramona or feta.

Or forgo the cheese and mix in a vinaigrette like the one below.

1 tbs lemon juice
1/4 cup rice vinegar
1 tbs olive oil
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp salt
