Wednesday, May 18, 2011

I really love Couscous vs Rice... I steamed my veggies;zuchini,squash,caulifl
ower with chicken broth .... added in the crab meat n shrimp w/ a little more broth..brought to a boil then when the veggies where tender and shrimp cooked added season.. ms dash n pepper... after put it on low heat and making sure to have 1cup of broth to every 1/2c of couscous I pour the couscous in and let it cook- it cooks like rice. I stirred couple of times and it was done. Less than 3 mins. So Yummy. Yes, I eat from a small baby plate b/c it helps me control my portions.

    This is great! I will have to make it too. I love your idea of baby plates (divided). I use a small salad plate for my portion control. It does help!
    Your doing great!

    It looks delicious. I have "cooked" couscous by just pouring boiling water on it, covering and it is ready to eat in about 5 minutes. I found some whole wheat couscous which is even healtheir than regular couscous...I found it at the food co-op. The other grain from co-op which is so easy to cook is quinoa flakes which I use to make very high protein, tasty pancakes (I make one at a time for breakfast occasionally.)

    If you would like my recipe for the pancakes see my favorites on my page.

    thanks for sharing about your lunch.... emoticon
