“Couscous is a quick and easy side dish. This version uses vegetable broth but I'm sure it would be lovely with chicken or beef broth as well. This particular combination of ingredients just happened to be what I had in the pantry--feel free to make substitutions to suit what's in YOUR cupboards!”

Directions

  1. In a small pot with tight fitting lid bring 1-1/2 cups broth to boil.
  2. Add 1 cup couscous.
  3. Stir until broth returns to boil, cover with lid, remove from heat and let sit (covered) for at least five minutes.
  4. Heat olive oil and butter in pan on medium high heat.
  5. Add mushrooms and onions, and a dash of salt and pepper. Sauté for 2-5 minutes.
  6. Add garlic and bell peppers and sauté for an additional 5 minutes until mushrooms are nicely browned and onion and peppers are tender.
  7. Clear a spot in the middle of the pan and heat pine nuts, let them get a little brown if you like, it will bring out more of their flavour. (Or toast them separately - I'm just too lazy!).
  8. Fluff hot cooked couscous with a fork, mix in sautéed mushrooms etc. Top with chives. Enjoy! (We love this recipe with grilled chicken thighs or steak, but it's a great addition to a meatless/vegetarian dinner as well!).
