Ingredients

  • 3/4 cups water
  • 1 cup uncooked couscous whole wheat or regular
  • 1 1/2 cups small broccoli florets
  • 1/3 cup shredded carrot
  • 1/2 cup finely diced red onion
  • 1/4 cup raisins optional
  • 1/4 cup dry-roasted cashews chopped
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 15-ounce can chickpeas (garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed)
  • 3/4 cup crumbled feta cheese

Instructions

  • Bring 1 3/4 cups water to a boil in a medium pan. Gradually stir in couscous. Remove from heat; cover and let stand 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork.
  • While couscous stands, steam broccoli florets, covered, for 3 minutes or until tender. Once cooled, chop smaller if necessary.
  • In a large bowl, combine couscous, broccoli, carrot, and next 10 ingredients (carrot through chickpeas), mix to combine. Sprinkle with feta cheese and serve.

Notes

Curried Couscous Cooking Tips

    • Toasting couscous gives it more flavor. You can melt a little butter or olive oil in the saucepan and stir in your couscous until it smells fragrant and toasty.
    • This recipe can sometimes need a little extra olive oil to make it moist. Add as much as you'd like until you have the consistency you desire.
    • Small broccoli pieces work best, so chop them smaller if you are cooking larger heads.
    • If you don't have regular raisins on hand, I've used currents and golden raisins in this recipe with great results.
    • If you want to make it a heartier meal, this recipe is wonderful with cooked chicken, shrimp or thin strips of flank steak.
    • This recipe is even better if you let it sit for a while before serving to allow the flavors to meld.
