green goodness

pesto couscous with veggies. very fast, very simple.

1 cup couscous
1/2 cup veggie broth
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup soybeans (edamame)
1 zucchini, diced
1/2 onion, diced
1 tsp canola oil
salt and pepper to taste
~2 tbsp pesto

bring veggie broth and water to a boil. then turn off heat, stir in couscous, cover and leave alone while you make the veggies.
saute onion and zucchini. add edamame at end to heat through.
fluff couscous with fork. add veggies. add pesto. stir and you're ready to eat!
you can add more pesto if you want it more heavily seasoned.
we also added some slivered almonds on top too.
the crunch of the almonds is a nice contrast.
this is really a very versatile dish. if you want some meat in it, add some diced chicken. i like it as a vegetarian dish though. mmm, yum.
