Hello. Hope all is well : )
I was going through my computer and found pictures of this couscous, which I made about a month ago and never got around to posting. I must say I’m not the biggest fan of couscous; I find it bland and kind of hard to eat. Is it just me?
Either way, this was pretty yummy. The flavors of this side-dish are definitely more summery but delicious for any time of year nonetheless. And, it takes about 10 minutes to prepare, which is always a plus.
Side notes: • I used spinach flavored couscous but feel free to use the regular kind. • It only occurred to me now that bacon would be a lovely addition (isn’t it always though?)
3/4 c couscous
1 c water
1 tbsp olive oil
1½ bell peppers (I used orange and red,) diced
1 tbsp butter
About 1/3 c red onion, diced
2 tbsp white raisins
2 tbsp dill, chopped
In a medium pot, bring the water to a boil. (Meanwhile, sauté the peppers in a pan with the olive oil for about 5-6 min.)
Once the water is boiling turn the heat off and add about 1/2 tsp of salt, the butter and the couscous. Stir and cover with lid for 4-5 min until water is absorbed. Then add the onion, raisins and dill. Taste for seasonings and serve.
This was yesterday’s breakfast, BTW:
Strawberries, blueberries and banana with Greek yogurt and homemade granola. It was so pretty, I just had to take a picture.
P.S: Aren’t the Matisse-inspired dishes just lovely??
And, I might have some very good news in the near future ; )
