Toasted Couscous

Like many families, our weeknights are often rushed and busy, but we still aim to sit down to dinner together.  It is just the two of us (and usually our begging cat who thinks he is a dog), but we enjoy this time to discuss the day and usually develop a game plan for the next night’s dinner. We also “go dark”.

No, silly, we don’t eat our meals by candlelight. Going dark simply means we put down our phones. No texting, Whatsapping or Twitter allowed, only our undivided attention on each other. However, generally we still have work to do after dinner, which means we need simple, yet wholesome weeknight meals. My Toasted Couscous is ready in just 10 minutes…. 10 MINUTES!

Shallots add mild flavor to nutty, lightly toasted couscous spiked with white wine and olive oil.  Toasted couscous is a simple enough dish that is can really be served with any entree, but I like mine with Lemon Garlic Chicken. The sauce pairs perfectly and soaks right on in. Delicous!
