Cous Cous Primavera

Yesterday, April 12th, was "National Grill Cheese Day" & I made some Caprese Panini- Fresh mozzarella, basil & tomato with extra virgin olive oil & balsamic vinegar. YUM! But I wanted something on the side too, so I made a simple yet delish, cous cous primavera:

Grilled, fresh goodness!
Cous Cous Primavera
  • Cooking Spray
  • 1 Red Bell Pepper, thickly sliced
  • 1 Zucchini, sliced into coin shapes, then halved
  • 1 cup Water Or Chicken Stock
  • 1 cup Cous Cous
  • Zest & Juice of 1 Lemon
  • Freshly grated Parmesan Cheese

Using a oil-sprayed grill man on Medium-high heat, grill the zucchini & red pepper slices, about 2-3 minutes on each side.

In a sauce pan, bring the water (or stock) to a boil... turn off heat & add the cous cous. Cover for 5 minutes then fluff cous cous with a fork. Add lemon zest, grilled veggies & lemon juice. Toss lightly & top with grated parmesan cheese. 

Enjoy as a side or on on it's own! YUM.
