North African Cous Cous 2
From: imocku

Here's a recipe from one of the Moosewood Cookbooks that I thought was terrific.
It's quite tasty and very easy and quick to prepare once you've set up your ingredients.

  • 2T oil
  • 1/2C chopped red pepper
  • 4 Scallions chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1t ground coriander
  • 1/2t tumeric
  • Pinch cayene pepper
  • 2-3 C hot vegetable stock
  • 3/4lb tofu
  • 1C fresh or frozen peas
  • 1C quick cook cous cous
  • 1T margarine
  • salt and pepper to taste
Heat oil and add pepper, scallions, garlic, corriander, tumeric and cayene pepper.
Saute on medium heat for 3-4 minutes.
Stir in 2C stock and tofu.
Cook for an additional 3-4 minutes.
Stir in peas and cook for 1 minute.
Mix in cous cous and margarine and remove from heat.
Let sit for 3 minutes or until the liquid is evaporated.
If the dish is too dry, add additional hot vegetable stock.
