Couscous, onions, garlic and lentils. It doesn't get much easier than that! This recipe was designed for a happy, healthy digestive system in mind. We are running low on our weekly supply of produce and I like to try to use up the last bits of what we have on hand. It forces me into creativity and in turn, we get to try a new meal that would otherwise be overlooked with papas fritas and guacamole, one of our favorites! :)
This meal is simple, delicious and nutritious. Three things I love! It is versatile with room for your own creativity and may be enjoyed as one complete meal or a side dish. I made the lentils in a rice cooker, poured boiling water over couscous, covered it and proceeded to saute some onions and garlic in lime juice. Once the lentils were done, I mixed it all together and served it with Braggs Liquid Amino's (similar to Soy Sauce) along with Sriracha Sauce. If you are ever constipated or having problems in that department, eat some lentils! I swear they are magical at cleansing your body. For me, they work every single time, and it is my hope you have the same results. :)
Total Time: 30 Minutes | Servings: 4
Place ingredients in a rice cooker, stir, press cook. Proceed to make the couscous and onion mixture.
Mix the couscous and seasoning in a pot. Pour the boiling hot water over the couscous. Allow to sit for 10 minutes covered, I had ours sit longer until the lentils were done. Fluff before serving.
Onions and Garlic in Lime Juice:
In a cast iron skillet (or preferred skillet) add freshly squeezed lime juice. Turn the heat on medium, add the chopped onions and minced garlic. Saute for about 5 minutes until fragrant. Cover and set aside until the lentils are done. Once the lentils are done, fluff the couscous, add it to the skillet along with the lentils. Stir to combine. Serve with Bragg's Liquid Amino's, Soy or Tamari Sauce and add Sriracha or hot sauce if inclined.
