My Version of a Moroccan Cous Cous...Kinda Sorta


So, you may remember my review of SOUK, and how I ordered the cous cous...which was good but not that great. I really like the idea of adding something sweet and chewy to the cous cous, but there version left me wanting something more. Although my version is still not as flavor packed as I would like, it is definitely a start to my creating the best possible imitation Cous Cous.

Ingredients

2 Cups of Uncooked Cous cous
1 Cup of Halved Cherry Tomatoes
1 Cup of Craisins
1 Cup of Feta
1/2 Cup of Chopped Walnuts
1 Tablespoon of Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper to Taste
1 Teaspoon of Cinnamon

Directions (Easy Peasy)

1) Cook Cous Cous according to package directions
2) Meanwhile, halve your tomatoes.
3) Once Cous Cous is finished cooking, transfer all additional above ingredients.
4) Mix well
5) Enjoy and Share!

I would have liked more of a kick and maybe something green in there, so perhaps on the next go around I might throw in some sugar snaps, snow peas or some other green pea like ingredient. I am also considering adding a more substantial protein because as it is now, I think it serves better as a side dish than a main meal, and my end goal is a main meal...maybe next time.

But, it definitely is a tasty side as is. And pretty too!
