It’s been so long since I’ve had couscous! For those of you who don’t know, couscous is a grain made from coarsely ground durum wheat. While couscous is mainly found in Moroccan cuisine, it has recently made its way into more and more American homes. Couscous is used in meals in a similar manner as rice. You can serve it under meat, as part of a stew, or just make it plain as a side dish. It is easy to make and cooks extremely quickly! Today I made mine with feta and sun-dried tomatoes for a quick and easy dinner!
Couscous with Feta and Tomatoes
vegetarian, soy-free, peanut-free, tree nut-free, seed-free, sugar-free, shellfish-oil, fish-free, bean & legume-free
- 1 cup boiling water
- 1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes (not packed in oil)
- 1 can vegetable broth
- 1 1/4 cup uncooked couscous
- 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
- 1/2 cup minced fresh parsley
- 1/2 tsp dried oregano
- 3 tsp lemon juice
- 1 tsp water
- 1 tsp olive oil
In a small bowl, pour boiling water over tomatoes and let sit for 5 minutes. In a small saucepan bring broth to a boil. Stir in couscous and remove from heat. Cover and let stand for 5 minutes until broth is absorbed. Drain and chop tomatoes. Combine couscous, tomatoes, cheese, parsley, oregano, lemon juice, water and olive oil in a large bowl. Serve warm or chilled!
This dish is so delicious! I will definitely hang on to this recipe so that I can make it again in the future as a side to a larger meal!
