Couscous & Veggie Bowl

Have you ever had one of those nights where you literally forget to eat? I’m sure that must sound weird. A food blogger forgetting to eat. With all my classes this week, my mind has been off in a million directions and forgotten about my stomach. Until now.

Couscous has definitely become my new fave this year. Quick, easy, and tasty. There also seems to be a million different things you can do with it. It cooks up in 5 minutes and by adding a few yummy veggies, within 10 minutes you too can feed your forgotten appetite.

Boil 1 1/4 cups water. When water is ready, add water to 1 cup whole wheat couscous and stir. Cover for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork. While couscous is sitting, rummage through your fridge for leftover vegetables or anything you’d like to top off your couscous. Here are some of my favorites: carrots, green onions, spinach, red bell peppers, broccoli (lightly steamed), sunflower seeds, and baked tofu. Finish with a dollop of tahini, a squeeze of fresh lemon, and a few slices of avocado.

    I think I’ve taken on your love of couscous, ’cause I cook with it all the time too now! I agree that it is SO easy, it just sits there and cooks while you chop and cook other things. Perfect!
