couscous is one of our favorites. it’s a common side dish in our house. everyone enjoys it.
i like to keep it simple. very simple. a couple herbs, some onions and garlic for flavor, and at the end…i love to throw in some dried cranberries.
it a perfect summer dish. it’s light, it’s airy and accompanies meat, chicken or fish really well.
it’s full of flavor, you’ll be surprised. the tiniest of ingredients really makes this dish something special.
this dish serves a small family of 4, that’s about 2 adults and 2 small children
- to a pot, add 1 tbl canola oil. heat up and saute onion and garlic for about 3 minutes on a medium flame.
- add dried couscous and mix. cook for one minute more. add herbs (i used basil, parsley and dill). mix. add stock, mix. set flame to simmer and cover for 7-10 minutes.
- at this point i take the cover off, mix in the greens, and add cranberries. cover, take off flame and let sit for 5 minutes or so.
- fluff the couscous with a fork, mix the greens and cranberries around, spoon into a pretty bowl, and serve.
