Israeli Couscous

40CoG (6)

I came up with this recipe as side to our 40 Cloves Garlic Chicken but the flavors in this pasta dish would have gone beautifully with our Israeli Roasted Garlic Chicken.  The recipe is simple but the flavors are anything but–it’s complex, fruity, herb-y, and come on, it’s just gorgeous.

| Ingredients |

  • 2 cups cooked couscous
  • 1/2 medium red onion, sautéed
  • 1/2 cup pomegranate arials
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley

| Directions |

  1. Mix it all together….and serve.  Hey, that was easy!

An easy way to cook couscous is in the rice cooker, if you have one.  You use the same ratio of couscous to water as you would in a pan and, after the cooking cycle completes, just let it rest on the “warm” setting for 10 minutes.  This way you can free up your hands and mind to prepare your main dish.
