I have got another Gooseberry Patch cookbook to share with you, and boy am I excited! I’m cooking from “101 Stovetop Suppers”. So far, this book has been great for quick and easy meals for those busy summer nights. Here’s the first recipe I tried… Be sure to stay tuned for a few more recipes from this cookbook, and a giveaway coming up in a few short weeks!
For this one-dish speedy couscous – start with 1 zucchini, halved and chopped; 1 carrot, peeled and chopped (or grated, if you prefer); and 1 celery stalk, sliced.
Add 2 cups of cooked chicken. This would be a great way to use up some leftover chicken. I didn’t have any, so I just cooked two chicken breasts in a skillet with some olive oil, salt, and pepper. Quick and easy (and probably the hardest part of this entire meal!).
Bring 2 cups of orange juice to a boil (I used the same pan I cooked the chicken in), and pour over the couscous mixture. Stir it up to get it good and mixed. Then cover and let everything stand for five minutes.
When your five minutes are up, add 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon pepper, 1/4 cup fresh chopped basil, and 2 chopped green onions. I also added some fresh chopped cilantro. Give it all a good stir to get the herbs mixed in, and you’re ready to eat!
