Vegetarian couscous

I didn’t want to be cooking today. Again… So I gathered everything we had home and made this super quick, yet tasty couscous. My daughter ate so much of it I was left hungry, eventhough she doesn’t like legumes!

Preparation time: 15 minutes

Cooking time: 15 minutes

  • 1 organic onion
  • 1 organic sweet potato
  • 2 cups (500ml) of frozen chickpeas (cooked previously and frozen)
  • 1/2 cup of fresh coriander
  • 2 cups (500ml) of water
  • 2 cups (500ml) of couscous
  • 1 tsp. (5ml) of curcuma
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) of raisins
  • 1/4 cup (62.5ml) of organic walnuts
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  1. Thinly slice the onion and cover the slices with olive oil and salt. Let it rest for approximately 15 minutes.
  2. In a pot, bring water to boil.
  3. Peel and cut in small cubes the sweet potato, put it in the boiling water and add the frozen chickpeas and let it cook for about 15 minutes.
  4. In a small pot, bring the 2 cups of water to boils. Remove it from fire and put in the curcuma, the raisins and the couscous. Cover for a minute. Uncover and with a fork, separate the grains so it doesn’t turn into a thick bread. Cover again for 3-4 minutes.
  5. When the vegetables are cooked, drain the water and put it in a salad bowl. Combine the couscous, the coriander, the walnuts, add olive oil, salt and pepper. Stir all the ingredients and that’s it. For a Gluten free version, you can do this with millet, but the cooking time is going to be a bit more.

As I always do, I asked my readers to take part, maybe tell me what they think about my recipes and give me some tips, as well. What do they think of this one? Do they like it, did they make someone important to them happy with it? Did it help them save some time? Simply, what do our readers say about this recipe? Here it comes:

“I wish I had bought this when I was in Melbourne in January, when it didn’t snow. The only reason I didn’t buy it is because it wasn’t in our store. You should make another one with different ingredients.”

“Very easy to make and very tasty! As someone who has very little time in the morning, will definitely make this for my family.”

“Awesome, With love, Hoda.”

“I tried it 2 weeks ago, and have not stopped making them ever since. They are so delicious!”

“It’s quick to put together but you have to keep an eye on them while they cook.”

“Oh yeah, oh yeah, this is what I like, baby, this is what I like! Going to make it again tomorrow for sure, maybe even two times! Or three?”

And a little note before I will finally say goodbye to y’all: You’re 1 000, no 1 000 000, no 1 000 000 000 times more awesome and nice and excellent than every recipe here. Love you, love you all!
