Curried Couscous with Broccoli and Feta

 

I have to give my hubby Aaron credit for finding this recipe. He and I have made it 4 or 5 times in the last few months, and we do not usually repeat a recipe that often. It’s loaded with flavor, veggies and is meat-free. It can be eaten warm, room temp or cold (I prefer it cold-room temp). The combination of sweet from the raisins, spice from the curry and salty feta is perfect!

Curried Couscous with Broccoli and Feta

  • 1 cup uncooked couscous
  • 1 medium head of broccoli, cut into bite sized pieces
  • 1 small red onion, diced
  • 1 cup shredded carrot
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1/3 cup roasted cashews
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1-2 tablespoons curry powder (I usually use 2)
  • 1-2 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 (15-ounce) can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 3/4 cup feta cheese, freshly crumbled

Directions:

  1. Cook couscous according to the directions on the package. While the couscous is cooking steam the broccoli until it reaches your desired tenderness (about 5-8 minutes).
  2. In a large bowl combine the remaining ingredients (except for the feta). Add the couscous and broccoli when they are done cooking.
  3. Serve in bowls and top with the crumbled feta.

Makes about 6 servings.
