Couscous with Mushrooms and Herbs


I’m not sure what took me so long to jump on the couscous train. I suppose better late than never eh? Regardless I’m glad I finally did. It is pretty incredible. Little balls of pasta-liciousness bursting with flavor. Almost like savory boba balls (you know the ones in bubble tea or at the fro-yo shop) without the liquid burst. Okay not at all like boba balls I just also happen to like those. A lot. Like I have a 7 pound jar in my Amazon cart right now. I don’t kid about food. Ever. What else do I love? Mushrooms. Mushrooms plus Israeli couscous = happy happy happy.

While I’m not vegetarian (I am way too fond of bacon) we do eat a few meat-less meals every week. It’s great for the budget and the body (or so I’m told). By adding mushrooms to the couscous it’s meaty, hearty and filling. So much so you won’t even miss the meat. Truth.

You can find my fun to say fun to eat,  COUSCOUS with MUSHROOMS and HERBS recipe on the Mushroom Channel Blog along with more mushroom recipes than you can shake a stick at. Go on, try.
