Couscous

Couscous is a traditional North African dish. It is often served as a side like rice would be. This is my original recipe that I love as a quick, weekday side dish to my roasted veggies. Sometimes I add a cup of chick peas and a cup of fresh baby spinach to make it a hearty and nutritious one-pot meal. Couscous is very affordable and versatile so you can add your own favorite veggies or beans to it.
