Easy Couscous Recipe
September 15, 2021
With a lot on our plates (and takeout meals on our dinner plates), it seems difficult for high schoolers to enjoy healthy and delicious meals every day. While most of our time after school is spent on homework and extracurricular activities, you can section off some time to relax and cook yourself a yummy dinner. The following couscous recipe is fairly quick and easy to make, taking less than 30 minutes to make and serving 4 people. It’s also vegetarian, although you can add cooked sausage or any other meat.
Here are the ingredients you will need. It’s important to note that you can adjust the ingredients on preference. You can also take away or add more vegetables!
- 3-4 oz Couscous – I use this Israeli Couscous from Trader Joe’s
- 1 diced medium red/yellow onion
- 1 diced grape tomato
- 2 ounces of spinach
- 1 diced carrot
- 5 cups of stock (vegetable or chicken)
- 2 cups of water
- Garlic powder, salt, cracked black pepper
- In a medium pot – heat a generous drizzle of olive oil over medium heat. Add your onion, spinach, and carrot. Cook for 4 minutes, or until carrots are soft, stirring as needed.
- Pour in stock and water (for more savoriness, don’t add water and instead use 7 cups of stock). Season with garlic powder, salt, and black pepper to taste.
- Add couscous, cover pot, and bring to a simmer. Cook for around 8 minutes or until couscous is soft and chewy.
- Serve and enjoy!
This couscous recipe is versatile and simple. Feel free to make this recipe your own and customize ingredients based on what you like to eat! Remember to be careful when working with sharp knives and open flames. Stay tuned next week for another recipe!
