What’s for Dinner? …Husband’s Couscous Recipe!

My Husband is an outstanding cook.  This is one of my favorite qualities about him because I much prefer to bake.  Cooking means healthy food and healthy food and I don’t entirely get along.  I have to work on that, but in the meantime, Husband ROCKS in the kitchen.

What’s even better about a husband who can cook, is a husband who wants to cook and try new things with spices and ingredients.  The spice rack is about as foreign to me as camping out in the wilderness, but Husband is so into it and I reap all of the rewards!  Mwahahaha!

I’m pretty excited to share this Israeli Couscous recipe with you because it’s a one of a kind Husband creation.  I know it’s not possible to share only exclusive recipes here since neither one of us are in the culinary industry, but we will certainly try to share as much as we can!

First, gather the ingredients.  We did NOT use the chicken broth below, because we made it vegetarian for my sister who was coming over to enjoy it with us.

This was a game time decision, hence the chicken broth appearing here!

Chop up the onion.

Start a boil on the water or chicken broth to the side in a sauce pan.

Toss the onion into the frying pan after you heat up the olive oil.

Next up is the minced garlic.  Just dump it all in and begin to sauté the mixture!

After 2 minutes of sautéing, add the couscous.

Mix it all around and lightly brown the couscous.  This typically takes 5 minutes or so.

Next up is to add your boiled water or chicken broth to the couscous frying pan.  As noted above, we used water to make this recipe vegetarian for my sister!

Bring the entire mixture to a boil.

As soon as the mixture boils, reduce heat to medium low and cover.  Simmer for 10-12 minutes or until water or chicken broth is absorbed.

Serve & enjoy!  I recommend adding a red wine to the table too.

Can you tell we’re pretty into shopping at Trader Joe’s?  I have no affiliate ties to TJ’s, but if you have one nearby and haven’t tried it…go, and go fast!

I used to glorify "busy." If I wasn't busy, I wasn't doing enough. But when I became a mama, my entire outlook shifted.

 

The only way out involved a complete overhaul of my time, money & communication systems.
