Morrocan Cous Cous Dinner!

May31

I accidentally made this pretty great meal the other night because I had a box of organic whole wheat couscous that I didn’t know what to do with. I just used what I had in the house along with some Moroccan spices and whamo – so good. I’m adding it to my list of favorites…
(picture to come – haven’t had time to download/upload it):

1 box whole wheat couscous – prepare it according to package only use veggie broth instead of water and set aside until you are ready to serve.

saute 1 onion cut in chunks in olive oil, add in chopped zucchini, bell pepper, Kale and garlic (at the last minute) with some sea salt.

Sprinkle in about a teaspoon or two of cinnamon and coriander, and a little cumin to taste. I like a lot of these things, but they are all strong flavors, so just use your nose as you’re doing it and find a good balance and aroma that makes your brain happy.

Meanwhile steam some carrots and the stems (chopped up) from the kale until soft. Throw those into the saute pan with everything else. Add cubed tofu, raisins, and chopped almonds.

Serve the veggie mixture over a bowl of coucous and enjoy!
We had fresh corn on the cob with this dish and it went perfectly. It didn’t need it though. I think it stands on it’s own nicely.

I used this Giada recipe the other night to make what turned out to be a great dish!
Giada’s Pasta Primavera

It was a huge hit. I didn’t use the tomatoes because I forgot, but I did roast the veggies and use Brown Rice Pasta from TJ’S. Yum. Zeke made his famous Stuffed Pizza and I made a simple salad with Ann Gentry’s Vegan Ranch Dressing. (that’s another post. It’s so good!! You’ll never go back) My whole family was happy and full. Hard to do considering they are convinced that everything we eat is weird and gross.
