Mon mari has never been a big fan of couscous…. No substance; no flavor; he claims.
This may have converted him….
Couscous Feta Pilaf serves 2
1/2 cup couscous
3/4 cup chicken broth
6 cherry tomatoes
1 ounce (30gr) feta
1 tbs snipped chives
1 tbs snipped basil
2 tsp olive oil – the good stuff
Heat chicken broth to a boil. Put couscous in a medium bowl. When broth is boiling pour over couscous, cover and let stand for 10 minutes…Do not stir it. Snip herbs. Cut cherry tomatoes in half. Pit olives if needed, then cut in half. Crumble feta. When couscous is ready, uncover, add remaining ingredients, including olive oil, fluff gently with a fork to combine and serve.
Note: The easiest way to pit olives is to lay them on a cutting board or counter, put the blade of a large knife flat on top and whack the flat blade with the heel of your palm. The olive will split, and you can remove the pit.
This is also the easiest way to peel garlic.
Plus it's a great stress reliever…. Do remember to keep the blade flat.
In addition to the above, for the week of May 9, we have Warm Leek Salad with Prosciutto, Baked Salmon Dijon, Steak with Cheesy Oven Fries, Asian Chicken and Cabbage Salad, and more…
