a side dish that stole the show!!

I’m cuckoo for couscous, so tonight as a side dish I made Israeli couscous mixed with red, green and yellow peppers.
Hearty, homey and best of all easy to prepare; these little beads take on the flavor of almost everything you incorporate with it. So, I started by sautéing the peppers in a tiny amount of olive oil, then added some hot chicken stock and the little pearls of goodness. Brought everything to a boil, reduced to a simmer and covered until the little balls swelled up and turned into some really big, plump balls! Stirring occasionally, and before I knew it, I was shoveling those yummy orbs of delight into my mouth…

at a low simmer…
