This spring should be filled with light, flavorful, and most importantly- tasty food! If you’ve never had couscous pearls before, I highly suggest giving this grain a go! (Or grain-a-go) It is a great dish to accompany any picnic, barbecue, or any party. If you wanted to liven it up any further, you could always add some arugula and sliced cherry tomatoes.
Yields 2 servings
1 cup couscous
1-1/2 cup filtered water
1/2 tsp. Vitacost Himalayan Fine Pink Salt
1 Tbsp. fresh parsley, chopped
2 tsp. lemon juice
1/4 tsp. ground pepper
2 tsp. vegetable broth or avocado oil
- Bring water to a boil; add the couscous and salt.
- Cover for 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally; set aside.
- Once cooled, transfer to a bowl. Add the parsley, pepper, lemon juice, and vegetable broth.
- Serve immediately.
Chef’s tip: Feel free to dice up cucumber and mint leaves!
