Couscous is my new foodie obsession. It is a basic dish that operates a lot like risotto in that you should be able to throw whatever you have in the pantry in with the mix for a quick meal when surprised by lunch or dinner guests. Be that as it may, I was dully daunted by this strange grain until I finally tackled my fear today. With some rehydrated raisins, chickpeas, caramelized onion chutney, french dressing, and a little cinnamon and ginger, I single-handedly crafted a dish I could have with this evening's salmon or cold for lunch tomorrow. There are so many creative ideas out there; I can't wait to see what works next time!
Check out the recipes on this Yahoo search engine I stumbled across while creating my own concoction. The possibilities are seemingly endless.
