One word: HEAVENN 

   

Ingredients: 

  1. A pack of couscous (a bit less than 500 grams)
  2. 2 Cloves of garlic
  3. 1 TBS of olive oil
  4. 3.5 Cups of chicken, beef or veggie broth.
  5. 1 Medium onion – finely chopped
  6. 2 Medium tomatoes – finely chopped
  7. Parsley – finely chopped
  8. Dried mint
  9. Salt and pepper
  10. 1/2 Cup of olive oil
  11. 1/4 Cup of lemon

   

Direction: 

  1. In a pot, saute`  1 tbs of garlic with 1 tbs of olive oil
  2. Pour in the broth (you can add couple of splashes of Worcestershire sauce if you find the broth you used a bit to bland tasting)
  3. Once the broth starts boiling, take it off the heat and stir in the couscous.
  4. Cover the pot and let it sit for 10 minutes, then flake it with a fork. put it in the fridge for about 10 minutes to reduce the heat.
  5. Meanwhile, mix the onions with the dried mint and set them aside for couple of minutes
  6. Take the couscous out of the fridge and mix the tomatoes and onions with the couscous, then add the dressing.
  7. For the dressing, mix olive oil, lemon, salt and pepper and what’s left of the garlic together.
  8. Last step: add as much parsley as you like and serve it to your loved ones :)

   

   

My family loved it so much. Even my picky nieces finished up their plates. 

   

   

Bon Appetit!
