COUSCOUS..THEY LIKED IT SO MUCH THEY NAMED IT TWICE!
Probably the easiest dish to prepare, it's just a matter of adding something original, exotic or simple! This is simple and just a bit different. I like to serve it with chicken or fish. Your choice. It goes so well with either. I also like it as is, with a salad, some crusty bread, and a nice light Riesling. Cheers!
2 TBS butter
1/4 cup slivered almonds
1 cup uncooked couscous
14 oz. can fat free, low sodium chicken broth
1/2 cup chopped orange sections or 1 small can mandarin oranges, drained (my preference)
3 TBS chopped fresh parsley
1/4 TSP salt
1 TSP grated orange or lemon zest
Melt butter in large skillet over medium high heat. Saute almonds until toasted and butter is slightly browned. Add couscous, cook, stirring for 1 min. Remove from heat. Bring broth to a boil in saucepan. Gradually add to couscous mix, stir. Cover and let stand for 5 min. Fluff with fork. Stir in oranges, grated zest, parsley and salt. Serves 3-4. Enjoy!
Any meal that takes about 10 minutes to prepare, gets a gold star in my book.
