Healthy Cous Cous Salad: (great for Vegans, Vegetarians and most other health conscious individuals, Meataterians may find satisfaction also)
This recipe yields approximately 5 servings (or more)
1 Cup of whole wheat cous cous
2 1 full package of frozen edamame beans
3 1 red Bell pepper finely diced
4 Handfull of coriander finely diced (optional)
5 1 package of spinach and arugula mix (approx 250g)
6 1/3 cup of sliced almonds.
1 1 Table spoon of olive oil
2 1/3 cup of fresh squeezed lemon juice
3 Add together in a bowl or container
Cook cous cous according to directions on package (I like to use vegetable stock to flavour the cous cous a little). Cook Edamame according to package directions. Allow both to cool to room temperature or refrigerate. Add all ingredients together (bell pepper, coriander, edamame, Arugula/Spinach mix and Almonds). Mix together till proportions look even.
At this stage you can add your dressing or as I like to do I serve my salad into containers for the week (Mon-Fri) and keep the dressing separate and add a little on the day.
Consume and enjoy!
