Couscous lunch

Stop reading this and go buy some organic whole wheat couscous right now!


All right, I assume you're back with the couscous in hand now. Now you can experience the amazing speed and deliciousness of this amazingly fast and delicious product! If you're not familiar with couscous, they are tender minuscule balls of wheat joy. All you do is boil some liquid, add the couscous, cover, and turn off the heat. Five minutes later and it's ready! Now that's fast!

And because this post wouldn't be complete without a recipe, here's what I just made for lunch with it:

Part 1: make couscous (subbing stock if you have any; I used free range chicken broth)
Part 2:
Saute in some butter 1 small thinly sliced onion and 1 julienned carrot.
Stir in a couple/few handfuls of spinach and a small handful of sprouts. After spinach welts a bit, turn off heat.
Top with Rogan Josh seasoning (or similar blend), golden raisins, toasted pine nuts (can easily sub another nut), and grated Parmesan cheese.
Part 3: Mix together the couscous and veggie mixture and devour!


Sorry, I just couldn't resist typing up one of my sudden kitchen inspirations, sloppy and all. :)
