Vegetable Cous Cous

A light and versatile dish

Cook time:

Prep time:

This wonderful dish can be used on the side, as a snack, or the main attraction!

Alter to your tastes, or at least by what you have in your cooler: grilled salmon, roasted chicken, sauteed shrimp or chopped kielbasa- whatever you're feeling just toss it in.

Ingredients:

Method:

  1. Follow instructions on package to prepare couscous, set aside. If adding in a protein to this dish, prepare it now as well.
  2. In a saute pan over medium heat, add 2 Tbsp of chosen olive oil then toss in your chosen veggie mix.
  3. Saute veggies till slightly tender, turn heat up a bit and add in white wine. Allow to reduce just a bit then add in stock. Cook for a few minutes till the pan sauce has thickened/reduced.
  4. Optional: make a well in the center of the pan and whisk in Greek yogurt. This creates a creamier sauce without the added fat from heavy cream.
  5. Finish with zest and lemon juice, stir.

    NOTE: adjust the amount of liquids in this recipe to suit your taste and the amount of couscous being used.

  6. Toss veggies with reserved couscous and top/mix in your protein.
  7. Finish with a drizzle of Pour Olive's UP or Flavored Olive Oil. I like to drizzle Pour Olive's Grapefruit Balsamic across the top as well for an added tangy kick. You can try out Sicilian Lemon balsamic or a dark balsamic for added flavor, too. Enjoy!
