Kookoo for Cous Cous

I have so much whole wheat cous cous! I bought a huge container of it, it must have at least 30 servings worth. Here is a recipe I came up with using some things I had on hand in the house. With a little chicken, it made a great meal! It would definitely taste great with fish or shrimp too. Does anyone have any other great cous cous recipes they can share with me?? Id love to think of even more ways to use it.


TZ Cous Cous
1 cup uncooked whole wheat cous cous
1 tbsp EVOO
a zucchini, chopped
5 sun dried tomatoes, finely chopped
1 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes
salt & pepper to taste
a few dashes Cayenne pepper (optional)
cup water
cup chicken stock


In a somewhat large pot, add EVOO and set to medium. Throw in the zucchini and sauté until edges start to turn light brown. Then add the whole can of tomatoes (do NOT drain), sun dried tomatoes, chicken stock, water, salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper. Bring to a boil then remove from heat and stir in cous cous. Cover tightly and let sit for 5 minutes. Then fluff with a fork and serve! This recipe makes 4 servings.
