Rainbow Pepper Couscous

Ingredients

Method

  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 large clove garlic, minced
  • 1 large shallot or 1/2 small red onion, minced
  • 3 medium red, yellow, green or orange peppers or a mix, finely diced
  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh oregano
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2/3 cup whole wheat couscous
  • Lemon wedges, for serving

Heat the olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat; add the garlic and shallots and cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add 2/3 cup water, the bell peppers, oregano, 1 teaspoon salt and pepper to taste, bring to a boil over high heat and cook until the peppers just begin to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the couscous, immediately cover and remove from the heat. Let stand, covered, until the liquid is absorbed and the couscous is tender, about 7 minutes.

Transfer to a platter or large bowl and serve with lemon wedges for squeezing.
