Post 101: Sauteed Cherry Tomato Couscous


Interesting little tidbit...or not: I was just looking at my blogger dashboard and noticed that my last post was my 100th post here. It just doesn't seem like I've posted that much over here, especially with the long hiatus' I've taken from time to time. Ah well my own little mini milestone I guess...

On to the recipe!

This one is a WINNER. Its super fast-really 15 minutes or less from start to finish, and it felt like comfort food to me. I ate it as a main dish for dinner, but you could easily throw chicken or fish along side it for the true carnivores.

Its a recipe from the Nature Sweet Tomato Company that I found in one of those Sunday paper coupon inserts. I modified it a little bit and it was truly delicious.


Sauteed Grape (Cherry) Tomato Couscous
Here's what you need:



3 cups low sodium veg stock (I used 1.5 cups chicken broth and 1.5 cups water)
1.5 cups couscous
1 tbsp EVOO
2 cups halved grape or cherry tomatoes
1/4 cup fresh spinach leaves, torn
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
2 cloves garlic ( I actually omitted this inadvertently and it was still good)
1 minced shallot
1 tbsp chopped fresh basil (I used about a tsp of dried basil)
Kosher salt and black pepper to taste
Here's what you do:
Place stock in a large saucepan over high heat and heat to boiling. Remove immediately from heat, and season with salt and pepper then stir in couscous and cover. Let stand for about 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, heat oil in saute pan over med high heat. When hot, add tomatoes, spinach, walnuts, garlic and shallots. Saute for about 3 minutes or until tomatoes begin to soften. Add basil and toss together. Season with salt and pepper.
Fluff couscous with a fork and transfer to a serving bowl. Add tomato mixture and combine gently.

Normally I'm not a big fan of couscous, but this looks delicious! BTW - I tried the chicken salad w/ grape tomatoes recipe. It was fabulous! ;-)

OH THANK YOU for posting this. I recently lost the exact same coupon you had with the recipe, and the Nature's Sweet website, amazingly enough, did not have it posted at all! They do have a section customer's can post their Nature's Sweet recipes to though. Perhaps you should add yours with the personal touches? I'll certainly be trying yours out, too.
