Spinach & Onion Couscous

spinach & onion couscous

It’s Earth Day!!  In honor of this green day celebration, how about putting some green on your plate.  This dish can simply serve as your meatless Monday meal or you can use vegetable broth instead of chicken broth and it can be a tasty vegetarian dish.  Since I can’t fathom not eating cheese, I am hesitant to tell my Vegan friends to leave out the cheese, but hey, you might still like it! Call it what you want……..I call it tasty! And you’ve gotta love a tasty AND healthy dish, so you’re welcome, but I think all the thanks should go to precious Mother Earth for our beautiful home! I am going to sit down tonight and try to think of ways to reduce our carbon footprint!
