The great thing about couscous is how fast it cooks. Just throw it into some boiling liquid, remove from heat and let it set for 5 minutes. So easy. Try to find whole grain couscous if you can.

Ingredients

  • 2 tsp. olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • ½ cup sun-dried tomatoes, sliced
  • 2 cups sliced mushrooms
  • 1 Tbsp. chopped fresh thyme
  • 2½ cups mushroom broth
  • Dash of hot sauce, or more to taste
  • 1½ cups couscous
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley
  • Pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onions and tomatoes and stir until the onions are softened (2-3 minutes).
  2. Add mushrooms and thyme and stir until the mushrooms give off their liquid and begin to soften (5 minutes).
  3. Add broth and hot sauce and bring to a boil. Stir in couscous.
  4. Remove from the heat and cover. Let stand until the liquid has been absorbed (5 minutes). With a fork, fluff the couscous and stir in parsley. Season with pepper.
