Nope I'm not traveling. Back to the routine.
Yesterday, I prepared a cous cous salad for my lunches this week. I didn't even taste it until lunch today and it was so good! I had never made this kind before. Usually I just get that package of Israeli cous cous from Trader Joes that has garbanzo beans and orzo and all sorts of stuff in it.
This time I made my own version, not from that package, and it goes like this:
1 1/3 cup dry plain Israeli cous cous (cook it)
1 cup dry red quinoa (cook it)
When those two grains are nice and cooked and cooled, add the following:
1/2 cup Vegenaise
1 tsp olive oil
1 tsp oil from marinated artichokes
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp crushed red peppers
salt and pepper to taste
Mix all together well. Chill overnight and eat a big helping of it for lunch. You can also add it to a regular salad for something a little extra special!
