GREEK-STYLE COUSCOUS RECIPE

Greek_style_couscous

We have a neighborhood block party coming up in May and I’m trying to decide what dish to bring to the mix. At these things there’s’ s always plenty of pasta and/or potato salads available so I like to bring something a little different to the table. Maybe something with a little international flavor like this Greek couscous that can be served warm or cold.

Are you a fan of couscous? We simply adore it – even the kids. I love adding these Mediterranean flavors to it to give it some real depth – feta cheese, artichokes, black olives, and pine nuts. Mmmm. Now I’m in the mood for this for dinner!  Get the recipe below…

Mediterranean couscous

Greek-style Couscous

  • 1 box couscous (I used pine nut flavor)
  • 1 1/4 cup chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1 can artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
  • 1 can diced tomatoes, drained
  • 1 small can slice kalamata olives
  • 2 green onions, diced
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • Pine nuts, toasted
  • Crumbled Feta cheese

Cook couscous according to directions, substituting the broth for the water called for on the box.

Drizzle couscous with olive oil and stir. Add artichokes, tomatoes, olives, green onions, pine nuts, and cheese, and combine.

Serve warm or as a cold salad.

TIP:  Make this a one dish meal by adding roasted chicken and garbanzo beans.

Greek couscous

There’s so much flavor in the ingredients that you don’t need a “dressing” for this, so I like that. It goes together quickly and easily and is a great pot-luck dish to take to a party.

This is also one of the dishes I included in my Greek themed dinner party ideas here. Serve it with Greek burgers, spanakopita appetizers, and hummus.

Have a great day!
