I’m so excited to be guest posting over at More than a Mountfull today! I have been following Dennis for some time now and truly look forward to my weekly visits to his blog. Not only are Dennis’ meals delicious, but they’re beautiful as well. Every time I read a post I know I’ll leave hungrier than a came and most likely ready to take on the quest of the elusive zucchini blossom in order to cook up another tasty creation.
But what truly brings me back time and again is the warm, caring, personality that Dennis puts out for his readers to enjoy. When I read his posts, it feels as though he’s talking to me personally; like I might just turn around and see him sauteing up a delicious meal right there in my kitchen (shhh… don’t tell my husband I have my very own chef). So Dennis, thank you so much for the opportunity to take over your blog for the day. I am delighted and honored to be here!
Let’s get cooking! Today I’m going to pop up a tasty side dish that was enjoyed by both my boys and my husband alike. It all came about with a lonely box of couscous that was taking up residence in my pantry. Couscous is one of those starches that I always think about cooking but never actually buy once I get to the store. I have my four year old, Alex, to thank for this dish because he’s the one who actually pulled the box of mini pasta balls from the shelf and proclaimed that we simply “must” buy it.
In honor of Alex, I decided to create a dish using some of his favorite flavors, including garbanzo beans, cherry tomatoes and cinnamon (yes, both my four year old and my 19 month old love chick peas). This dish was a hit at our house and hopefully it will be one at yours as well! Head over to your kitchen and grab up the following ingredients:
2 Cloves of Garlic
3 Green Onions, Chopped
8 Oz of Dried Couscous
11/2 Cups of Broth (Chicken or Veggie)
1/2 Cup of Wine
1 Can of Garbanzo Beans
1/8 tsp of Pepper
1/4 tsp of Cinnamon
1/2 of a Lemon, Squeezed
11/2 Cups of Halved Cherry Tomatoes
Salt to Taste
