i haven’t written a meatless monday recipe in a while. i came up with this one by accident.
i love love LOVE fresno peppers. they are so full of flavour and yet mild enough in heat to not overpower most dishes. i also love couscous; it’s simple and easy to make and reheats well, so i will often batch-cook it.
i shared this dish some with a friend this weekend over brunch and she commented on how much she liked it, so i thought i would share the recipe. as i said, i sort of came up with this on accident… but i’m glad i did, as i’ll be sure to make it again in the future!
simple ingredients :
- 1 cup couscous, 1 cup water
- 3 fresno peppers, chopped
- 5-6 mini bell peppers, chopped
- olive oil
this is a very easy recipe to make. simply saute peppers in olive oil until tender then pour in water. bring to a boil and add in couscous. remove from heat, cover and let sit for at least 5 minutes. fluff couscous with a fork and sprinkle in salt and pepper.
i also added in some cumin because i’ve been experimenting with spices… and i really liked it in this dish!
