Garlicky CouscousPosted: March 24, 2010
WOW is this ever easy and oh so good. I did add some broth to the mixture just to give the couscous a bit more flavor. Next time I will do half broth and half water. I found this recipe in the Eat Clean Diet Cookbook. The flavors were perfect with our grilled salmon and roasted asparagus (in blog soon).
1 1/4 cups water
1 tbsp evoo
1/2 tsp sea salt
2 large garlic cloves peeled and crushed
1 cups whole-wheat couscous
1 small red pepper roasted or 1 6 ox jar of roasted red peppers drained and diced
2 tbsp fresh basil chopped
fresh ground pepper
In a medium saucepan combine 1 1/4 cups water with oil, salt and garlic. Bring to a boil . Stir in couscous and remove from heat. Cover and let stand 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork and remove garlic cloves. Stir in red pepper and fresh basil. Season with pepper and serve immediately!
