Obviously there is a lot that can be done with cous cous, but does any one know any delicious (vegan) recipes?<br><br><br><br>
I'm a vegan male and, although I like the idea of cooking, I'm not very good at it. I have a small packet of cous cous and I'm not sure if there is anything I can do with it...

I use it to stuff peppers, which is tasy and easy.<br><br>
Just cook the cous cous, take a pepper, chop it in half, fill both halves with cous cous, and put it in the oven a while. Maybe you were looking for something more complex though...

I normally fry up some veggies with herbs or moroccan type spices, add the cous cous to the pan, top up with however much boiling water it says on the packet and leave it to cool. Then I would stir in a can of chickpeas and some pine nuts maybe, put into tubs and take it to work for lunch.

Try this:<br><br><br><br>
Fry some onions and garlic, then fake (Italian) sausage, add coarsely chopped tomatoes and couscous. Drizzle with lemon juice.

My favourite is cous-cous and vegetable curry.

A couple of good salads (cook the couscous and let it cool, add seperately)<br><br><br><br>
Corn, tomato, black beans, avocado, parsley (or cilantro), a little red onion, and dressing (lime juice, olive oil, a little chili powder, salt)<br><br><br><br>
Tomatoes, chickpeas, parsley (or mint)--a whole lot, kalmata olives, onion, garlic, and dressing (olive oil, lemon juice, salt).<br><br><br><br>
Both of these are also great a day or two later as leftovers.

You can use couscous the same way you would use any rice or pasta.<br><br>
It's nice as a bed for a stir fry, or even just with some tomato sauce and grilled/roasted/sauteed veggies and tofu or chickpeas thrown on top.<br><br><br><br>
I also like making cold couscous salad, with chickpeas, mint, black olives chopped into little tiny bits as well as some minced carrots and peppers- toss with a tiny bit of olive oil, lemon juice and pepper.<br><br>
Mmmm... I want this right now!

Saute snow peas, water chestnuts, and garlic in olive oil, lemon zest, and lemon juice. Serve over couscous. It's definately one of my favorite easy comfort foods.
