Couscous is something I prepare often with meals. Joe and I both love it and kids adore couscous. It can be used in place of rice or pasta or even on its own as a side dish.  Greta loves couscous so much that she specifically asks for it at the grocery store and she always asks for a second helping! Our favorite cous cous is Hodgson-Mills whole wheat. Last night we had a version of franks and beans with couscous.


Sausage and Chick-peas over Couscous

1 pkg. sausage  of your choice (I use low sodium)

1 can chick-peas, drained and rinsed

1 can Italian style stewed tomatoes

1/2 onion, sliced

1/2 c. water

Cut sausage into slices or chunks and brown. Add onion, chick-peas, tomatoes and water and cook until sauce thickens. Serve over prepared couscous. Recipe based on Progresso brand recipe.

I never thought about making a variation like this. Yum! I made your Lentil stew last week… we loved it!

I don’t know if I have every had Couscous.

I can’t wait to get moved into our house, and have my own roomy kitchen, and start making some of these delicious meals you post on here.

Your meals just amaze me. And I think it’s wonderful that your children eat such a wide variety of foods!

I have never had couscous…..but I’ve always liked the name. So fun to say!
