Tag Archive: Pearl Couscous

I had some Pearl couscous and was inspired to mix it with some broccoli slaw I had on hand.  The result was so yummy and so easy, I will definitely serve it again!


Just cook the Pearl couscous according to directions, let it cool and then mix it with the broccoli slaw. Yummm.



I made some simple baked chicken again tonight.  I made the mistake of not tasting the marinade first, and so I found i a bit bland.  No desire to share that ‘failure’ other than to say – always taste the marinade!  The kids liked it anyhow.

The real success in tonight’s dinner was the side dish.

2 boxes Near East original pearl couscous

1 package Eat Smart vegetable stir fry

2 Tbsp. olive oil blend

2 Tbsp. butter

2 tsp. each rosemary and thyme

1 tsp. flavored salt

Brown pearl couscous in olive oil and butter.  Season and cook 30 seconds more.  Add in 5 cups water and bring to a boil.  Lower to a simmer and cook 15 to 20 minutes until almost all the water is gone.

Meanwhile, cook veggies in the microwaive.

Stir into couscous.  Cover and set aside for 10 minutes.  Fluff and serve!


4-5 C. pearl couscous cooked according to directions.

1 Dole Chopped Salad (I used the veggies, but saved the toppings and dressing for another time)

1/2 C. salad dressing (had a little ranch and I mixed olive oil and wine vinegar)

Combine and enjoy!  It doesn’t get much easier than this!

After all the heavy eating yesterday, we opted for a light vegetarian dinner tonight.
