My family can’t get enough of this dish!
In a large saucepan over high heat, bring chicken broth to a boil. Add 1 tablespoon of the butter and 1/2 teaspoon of the kosher salt. Then stir in quinoa, millet, and garbanzo beans. Reduce heat to low and cover with lid. Cook for 10 minutes. Then stir in couscous, cover with lid again, and cook for 15 minutes more. Remove pan from heat, leaving the lid on.
In a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, melt 1-1/2 tablespoons of the butter. Add onion, red pepper, and garlic, and stir to combine. Sauté for about 8 minutes, stirring every few minutes, until onion is soft and translucent. Slide the vegetable mixture into the pan with the couscous mixture, and cover pan again with lid. If you worked ahead and the couscous mixture is not done cooking at this point, slide vegetables onto an extra plate, and add to couscous when it’s done.
Return same skillet to the burner (no need to wash pan first) and turn the heat up just a bit, to medium-high. Add the remaining 1-1/2 tablespoons of butter. Once the butter is melted, add cauliflower and stir to coat it with the butter. Sprinkle evenly with curry, cumin, and black pepper, and then stir again. Sauté for about 6 minutes, stirring every couple minutes, until cauliflower is tender but still firm. Add cauliflower to couscous and vegetable mixture, along with the cilantro, and fold to combine. Serve warm.
My immersion blender came with a small bowl and attachment that allows it to work like a food processor. I love it. It is great for small quantities such as this margarine rub for corn. I had a smidgeon of the mixture left over and used it on a grilled cheese sandwich. Yum!
When I made this dish I originally had a run-of-the-mill stewed lentil thing in mind. Then I just let my imagination run wild, grabbing whatever sounded good from my fridge and pantry. With ingredients like pomegranate molasses, cumin, smoked paprika, and fresh mint, it ended up tasting like a Middle Eastern version of baked beans. Savory, smoky, and complex-flavored with an underlying hint of sweetness, the sauce is killer.
