Couscous

Quick and easy (well, it takes time but only intermittant attention)  with just veggies for a summer side dish, or add meat for a one dish meal…either way it makes LOTS so you have the midnight snacking covered too

3 cups coussous

32 oz chicken broth

1 medium zucchini diced (peeling optional…I did because vitamin K)

1 cup diced tomato (fresh or canned, juice ok)

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 tsp dried basal

1 sweet onion, diced

3 Tbs butter

1 cup shredded cheese (parmesean, romano, or ‘italian blend’)

salt

pepper

drizzle extra virgin olive oil…optional

In large pot on very low heat: place onion, butter, pinch of salt. Cover and simmer over low heat until onions begin to caramelize. Increase heat to medium low. Add zucchini again cover pot and sweat, stirring occasionally, for about 10 minutes until zucchini begins to soften. Stir in tomatoes, a pinch of black pepper, garlic, basal, and chicken broth. Bring to a gentle boil. Stir in couscous, turn off heat, cover and allow to sit for 5 minutes. At the end of 5 minutes, uncover, stir in cheese and olive oil if desired. Adjust salt and pepper seasoning to taste.
