Sesame CouscousPosted: February 13, 2012
A richly-flavored vegan couscous dish.
2 cups whole wheat couscous
2 cups veggie broth
1 cup chopped cilantro
1 medium onion, diced
1/8 cup kalamata olives, diced
1/8 cup preserved lemon, diced (you can make these yourself)
2 tbsp tahini
2 tbsp lemon juice
hot sauce (whatever you have)
salt and pepper
1. Sautee the onion until browned, or caramelized if you have the time.
2. Bring broth to a boil, mix in the couscous, turn off the heat and cover
3. Blend the tahini and lemon juice together with hot sauce to taste – if you have some extra broth, you can use it to thin the mixture out.
4. Mix the cilantro, onion, olives, lemons, and the sauce mixture into the couscous, plus salt, pepper, and zaatar to taste.
