I know that you are busy sometimes and you don’t have time to cook a dinner for a long time. You need something quick that will take you less than 30 minutes. So today I have a quick, easy and simple recipe. I promise it will not take you more than 30 minutes total. And you will be definitely surprised with the flavor.

The Mediterranean couscous is vegetarian, packed with vegetables and seasoned with dried herbs. We don’t eat couscous often at home usually having potatoes, rice or pasta. However, recently I am trying to incorporate more couscous into our diets. I found it to be too plain maybe that’s why we don’t eat it often. However, I’ve noticed that if you season perfectly with some herbs, salt and pepper the couscous is very delicious.

This Mediterranean recipe is also perfect for party gatherings in the backyard because it can be served hot or cold as well. Salads can be a great dish to serve at parties like this Caprese Salad…such a beautiful presentation too!

I think this Mediterranean couscous is a great dish – delicious and full of herbs. It can be also served for dinner as a side dish together with any kind of meat.

I would like to hear from you! Do you cook couscous often at your home? Or maybe you prefer pasta or rice?
