Time: One hour (including prepping/clean up)
Listening to: Tallest Man on Earth and She & Him

I made such a delicious meal today that I HAD to share it. I seriously just wanted to keep eating and eating this. I had a dessert in mind, though, so I paced myself a bit. Here is the original recipe.

Curried Couscous with Broccoli and Feta

1 cup uncooked couscous
1 1/2 cups small broccoli florets
1/2 cup finely chopped red onion
1/3 cup shredded carrot
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup chopped cashews
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons curry power
1 teaspoon dried ginger
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 (15 oz) can chickpeas
3/4 cup crumbled feta cheese

Here is what you have to do:

-Boil 1 3/4 cups water in a medium saucepan. Add in couscous, stir, then remove from heat. Cover and let stand for 5+ minutes. When ready to mix, fluff with a fork.

-Steam broccoli florets for 5 minutes or until tender.

-Stir in couscous, broccoli, onion, and all other ingredients except the feta cheese. Once it is all mixed, dish and top with feta cheese. 

Hope you enjoy! MMM!
