Roasted Tomato “Feta” CouscousPosted: July 21, 2010
Whoa, is it Wednesday evening already?
This week has been speeding by and dragging along all at the same time!
I just found out that next Friday is an end-of-the-month potluck for work, and I’m required to bring a side dish. I need your best recommendations! I definitely want to go all out and impress – give me the best recipe/link you’ve got!
After this morning’s muckup, I definitely felt the need to redeem myself in the kitchen. I needed to prove that I don’t always consume funknasty concoctions that nobody sane would ever eat and that a food blogger in her right mind would never take responsibility for.
I’d like to thank dinner for so graciously offering itself up as a sacrifice for my culinary redemption.
I had a blank slate plate in front of me and a handful of options. Delectable but simple was the order of the night, and it came to be in the form of my favorite whole grain dish – couscous!
Since experimentation is obviously not my game today, I opted for classic Mediterranean flavors, adding a few simple ingredients to a Near East Pine Nut Couscous blend.
Halved cherry tomatoes roasted with a drizzle of olive oil, vegan feta, and savory oregano were the stars of the show.
This right here is proof that a meal need not be gourmet to be absolute perfection.
What is your favorite whole grain? I love couscous because it’s so light and fluffy – brown rice is a close second though!
