Spring Couscous

Reading Time: ( Word Count: )

Israeli couscous with market veggies, pistachios, tzatziki, and zhuug.

Short History: Couscous is a traditional North African dish of semolina, which is usually served with a meat or vegetable stew spooned on top. The first written reference to Couscous comes from a 13th-century cookbook, “The cookbook of the Maghreb and Al-Andalus.” The name of this dish comes from the Berber word(s) seksu or kesksu, which means “well rolled” or “well formed.” One cup of cooked Couscous gives you 35% of your daily requirements of fibers and provides a range of B vitamins. Along with those benefits, this meal from The Vegan Taste will also provide you with protein, folate, Vitamin C, nitrates, and more!

Reheating Instructions: Eat at room temperature
