End of the Week Cous Cous



Mix together two cups of dry cous cous, spices, salt, a tablespoon of olive oil add two cups of boiling water

mix cover and set aside for 3-5 minutes

Fluff cous cous with a fork, and set aside

Gather together all the vegetables in your fridge that are starting to look a bit sorry for themselves. Cut into smallish pieces.

I ended up with

String Beans
Corn cut off the cob
Pumpkin
Mint
Coriander
And Carrots

In a large non-stick thick bottomed pan; fry off the vegetables until cooked. Starting with the ones that require the most cooking such as pumpkin and adding one by one until you finish with the ones like corn that only take a moment.

Lower heat and add cous cous and any herbs. Toss together and serve.

  1. What a great idea for left overs! We always run into problems trying to use up veggies sitting in the fridge. I love couscous cuz it's so easy and quick!
