I have a new favorite food. Couscous. Yes, I know you’re probably thinking it’s just like quinoa or rice, but let me tell you, it’s all about the texture and speed at which it is prepared. When I first bought couscous, I got it because it was cheaper than quinoa. I brought it home, started boiling the water, read the box and was shocked to find that you don’t add the couscous until after the pot of boiling water has been removed from the element. You add the couscous, cover the pot with a cloth and leave for 5-7 minutes or until the couscous has expanded. It never gets stuck on the bottom of the pot, which makes cleaning really easy. Now, I’m looking for new ways to eat couscous and I think I’ve found ten recipes that will knock my socks off, and yours!

1. Honey Chipotle Chicken Bowls

Mmmm, I can’t wait to try out this spicy and sweet combination. The home made sauce is what will really take this recipe to the next level for sure.
