Veggie Couscous




I created this recipe last week when I wanted something cheap and easy to make with whatever veggies I had in my fridge. Here goes!

Veggie Couscous
Serves 5

1 cup whole wheat couscous
1 tbsp EVOO
2 cloves garlic pressed or crushed
1/2 head of cauliflower
2 cups of broccoli
2 tbsp sundried tomatoes in olive oil, chopped
3 stalks of green onions
1 small can/jar of artichoke hearts
salt and pepper to taste
chopped basil to put on top

Lightly steam broccoli and cauliflower. Do not cook it all the way, as you will be cooking it some over the stove. In a skillet, heat up EVOO and garlic. Add the broccoli and cauliflower and start pan searing it. Once it gets some color, add in the sundried tomatoes, green onions, and artichoke hearts. Also, add salt and pepper to taste. Prepare the couscous according to package directions. Remove skillet of vegetables from heat. Fold in couscous and top with a chiffonade of fresh basil. Bon appetit!
