Testing testing

Ok, on to new andd exciting things. Israeli couscous with red string beans, feta and pistachios. This was a 15 minute meal. I am not kidding.  It was so refreshing as a main meal for dinner on a hot day. Jeff thought he would prefer it as a side dish with something else possibly chicken or fish. I can see that but I was happy with this and a side of sliced bread from the farmers market!

So, I cooked 1.5 cups of israeli or pearl couscous in salted boiling water for 4 minutes. Then adding .5 cup cut up red chinese long beans from the farmers market to the water for another 2 minutes. I drained it and added it to the silicone bowl to cool. Onced cooled add 1 cup spinach, .5 cup chopped mint, .25 cup diced sundried tomatoes, 1 seeded cucumber sliced, 1 cup cubed feta, .5 cup pistachios, .5 cup red wine vinegar, 2 tbsp olive oil and ample cracker pepper. Toss together and serve.

We had it for lunch the next day and added lots of fresh squeezed lemon. That really added the zip it needed!

Please try this, it was great!
