I made this for lunch today and had to share because it turned out really well! I'm going to call it Garden Couscous.
Couscous with Fresh Veggies
4 servings couscous
2 servings balsamic vinegar
2 medium whole tomato
1/2 cup grated parmesan
1 tsp black pepper
4 tbsps basil
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp olive oil
2 cups asparagus
Cook couscous according to package directions. Use 1 cup of dry couscous.
Steam asparagus for ~8 minutes or until it is at desired tenderness. Chop tomatoes and basil.
After couscous is cooked, combine with asparagus, basil, and tomato. Add olive oil, vinegar, Parmesan cheese, and salt and pepper to taste. Toss to mix well. Makes 4 servings.
