Simple Vegetable Cous Cous

This is a delicious & easy side dish that is versatile & goes with most things, you can use any bag of frozen mixed vegetables you like, it is also a great way to use up bits of leftovers that aren’t quite a serving, meats included; the rule of thumb being throw meats in with the liquid to cook the cous cous, and vegetables , well in with the vegetables.

Ingredients:

2 cups cous cous,

1 cup of any stock,

1 cup water,

3 tablespoons olive oil,

1 cup of white wine,

salt to taste,

1 onion diced,

2 cloves of garlic or equivalent,

To make this is simple, take 2 pots, to one add the stock water and 3 tablespoons of olive oil, to the other add some oil, the wine and the diced onion and garlic, when the water & stock boil add the couscous and cook in the liquid according to instructions, in the other pot sweat the onion & wine mixture and toss in the vegetables, when both are done season to taste & combine. Easy. & a crowd pleaser, you can also use the resulting mixture for stuffing if you are so inclined.
