This is a super simple side dish that combines both veggies and starch!
Items Needed for 2 servings
- 3/4 cup dry Couscous
- 1 cup Chicken Broth
- 3/4 cup (1 small) summer squash, diced
- 3/4 cup (1 small) zucchini, diced
- 1/2 cup red onion, diced
- olive oil
- 2 lemons
I followed the package directions on my Couscous and for 2 servings I added 3/4 cup of CousCous to 1 cup boiling Chicken Broth. I covered and removed from heat. After 5 minutes I fluffed with a fork.
While the Chicken Broth is coming to a boil, dice the zucchini, summer squash, and onion. Add 1 or 2 pats of butter to a small skillet and saute the veggies until the onions are translucent. Add Salt and Pepper to taste. To the juice of 2 (larger) lemons and I wisked in about 1/8 of a cup of olive oil. (eyeballed it totally) Once the couscous is finished cooking, stir in the veggies and the vinaigrette. Right before serving, Julienne about 5 small (2 large) basil leaves and add to the mixture. Don’t add the basil too soon, it will turn brown.
Michael called this “Confetti” because apparently the diced veggies looked like confetti to him! So stinkin’ cute!
