Couscous with Fresh Mint & Peas


There is nothing quite like fresh mint. I have been working on some new recipes and I have a lot in my kitchen right now. So I tossed it in with couscous and peas for an easy side dish. It is so simple, it is isn’t even cooking.

3/4 cups water
1/2 cup Moroccan couscous
1 bunch fresh mint
1/2 cup frozen green peas, defrosted
The juice of 1/2 lemon
Salt and pepper, to taste

Defrost the green peas. Chiffonade the mint.

Pour the couscous into a heat proof bowl.

Place 3/4 cup of water into a pot. Bring it to a boil and then take it off the flame. Pour it over the couscous. Cover and let sit for a few minutes until the water is absorbed, about 2 minutes. Fluff with a fork. Add the peas and mint. Toss to combine. Season to taste with fresh lemon juice, salt and pepper. Enjoy!
