Mediterranean Vegetable Couscous Recipe

This morning, I searched the kitchen cupboard and realised that I still had a pack of Mediterranean couscous and everything else needed to prepare the dish for an amazing lunchtime. Choosing a special recipe sometimes can really throw me off my cooking schedule. I wanted to prepare for my family something very delicious, healthy and yet easy to prepare to meet up with the limited time schedule we have at the moment since we are going out on a visit to a friend’s house that just put to bed a set of bouncing baby twins {both girls}.

Since I have a pack of Mediterranean couscous, chicken breasts, fresh tomatoes, sweet corns,  green peas, green beans and spices sitting around in my kitchen, I thought it a simple recipe to make up for a perfect lunch. And while there are lots of couscous recipes that call for lemon and cheese, I decided to make this dish even more easier with some sort of basic ingredients of course.

Believe me, this is one of my favourite, easy and healthy dishes. I normally pour boiling water into the couscous, sieve out the water and then cook until done; thinly chop all the vegetables and stir-fry them in a frying pan; the remaining part takes approximately 3 minutes to pull together. I normally boil the chicken breasts before frying them to go with the couscous, although they are super delicious when eaten alone.

couscousThis is one of my favourite Mediterranean dishes and I am usually not that picky with couscous as long as it is properly cooked. This dish came out exactly the way I want it; not only did it turn out a perfect pot of vegetables couscous, it also makes a perfect dish to eat at work during lunchtime. Give this recipe a try and you will definitely enjoy the dish.

    It has become prevalent today in various matrimonial homes, that one of the core major roles of a womanhood has been neglected and abandoned in the risky hands of a mere maid. Thereby, allowing some miscreants and evil possessed little minded fellows to utilise this nascent opportunity to create misery, which may later result to either divorce or separation in a marriage. Therefore, I encourage the users of this website to greatly amass the kitchen knowledge and in return, become the masters of their stomach. My great regards to the CEO, its a wonderful site to visit, an avenue to understand the organisation of a good recipe, what makes a good chef/cook and the wisdom behind the intercontinental dishes, and how you can superlatively suggest, manage and administer perfectly on a dish, other than your native.

    • It is a pleasure reading this wonderful compliment from you Ebuka. This is a reflection that my fans out there do appreciate my efforts in sharing knowledge on everything food and health related topics.

      I can only try my best and work harder to put smiles on the faces of my numerous fans and visitors to my blog.

      Many many thanks and I hope you keep visiting my blog quite often.
