Sometimes the best recipes hardly seem like recipes at all. This recipe is certainly one of of those as it starts with a box of couscous. I’m not certain what’s in the mystery seasoning pack, but I do know that when it’s combined with the following ingredients it’s delicious. It’s also perfect for a week night dinner as it’s ready in 7 minutes. Serve on the side of grilled chicken or veggies.
Couscous with Peas and Herbs
1 5.6 oz box toasted pine nut couscous (suggested Near East)
1 c frozen peas, thawed
juice and zest of 1/2 a lemon
2 tbs mint, finely chopped
2 tbs basil, finely chopped
Add 1 1/4 c of water and seasoning pack to a pot, bring to a boil then add couscous. Take off heat and let sit covered for 5 minutes. Fluff couscous with fork then add peas, lemon juice and zest, mint, and basil. Stir until well combined then serve.
