Couscous & Cherry Tomatoes
Here, from Chef Anthony, is a simple and savory recipe for whole-wheat couscous. Enjoy it for lunch, as a side dish, or as a hearty snack any time of day.
couscous (whole wheat)
Lightly mist a medium nonstick saucepan with canola oil spray and pre-heat over medium-high heat.
Add onions to pan and sauté until softened, about 2 minutes.
Add tomatoes, garlic, oregano, black pepper, and water to pan, and bring to a boil.
Lower heat and simmer until tomatoes begin to soften, about 3 to 4 minutes.
Meanwhile, place couscous in medium mixing bowl.
Remove tomato mixture from heat and immediately pour over couscous. Cover and let stand 5 to 8 minutes, until couscous is tender and liquid is absorbed. Stir with fork to fluff before serving.
