I love couscous, it is one of my favorite fun foods to eat. Serve it with any protein for a well-balanced meal. You can have it for lunch, dinner or snack.
1 Tbsp olive oil
3/4 cup onion
1/2 cup diced carrot, turnip, zucchini and tomatoes
2 Tbsp ground cumin
1 tsp curry powder
1 tsp paprika
1-1/2 cups low sodium chicken broth
1 cup uncooked couscous
Salt and Pepper to taste
1. Heat olive oil and saute onions.
2. Stir in all ingredients and cook 5 minutes.
3. Bring to boil.
4. Remove from heat and add couscous until all liquid is absorbed and the couscous is tender.
5. Perfect side for any meal. I like to add a little low fat Parmesan cheese on top.
Low in saturated fat, low in calories, low in cholesterol, low in sodium, couscous is an excellent choice for complex carbohydrates. It is a good source of protein, although I recommend eating it with an additional protein. It is easily digestible, especially when prepared with the carrots, turnips, zucchini and tomatoes, which contain antioxidants to help fight cancer-causing free radicals.
