Description

This is a quick and easy side dish that’s healthy, and quite yummy. It’s also really simple to change up with different ingredients. Very versatile and handy to have in your weeknight arsenal.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Water
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1 box (about 5-7 Oz. Size) Couscous
  • 2 cloves Garlic, Minced
  • 10 ounces, weight Cooked, Chopped Spinach
  • ¼ cups Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • Salt And Pepper, to taste
  • Parsley, To Garnish

Preparation

Bring water and olive oil to a boil. Once boiling, add 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Pour in couscous and garlic. Give a quick stir, turn off the heat, put the lid on the pot, and let stand for 5 minutes. During that time, prepare spinach. If using fresh, wilt down in a large saute pan until soft and bright green. Salt and pepper to taste, then chop into pieces. If using frozen, thaw spinach in the microwave according to package instructions, and wring out the spinach to get rid of excess water.

Once the couscous is done, fluff with a fork until all the couscous clumps are broken up. Add the spinach, Parmesan, and salt and pepper to taste. Give it a stir, finish with parsley (always optional), and serve.
