Alliteration much?? 😉
But definitely no alliteration in vain, this was the most comforting bowl of food (and it was ‘healthy’ food, mind you) I’ve had in ages.
‘Spinach and Mozzarella Tabbouleh’
*although I’m not sure whether it still classifies as tabbouleh when you heat up the couscous?? anyone?
- a cup of couscous
- a cup of boiling water
- a tomato, chopped
- spinach, a couple of handfuls
- 5 big mushrooms
- a few mozzarella slice
- pepper, oregano, dried garlic, thyme
- optional: olive oil, some butter
Pour the boiling water over the couscous, give it about 5 minutes to absorb the liquid. When all the liquid is absorbed, fluff the couscous with a fork (you can add some olive oil or butter to it).
Add the diced tomato, mushrooms, spinach and the spices and preheat your oven to 200°C (390F).
Transfer the couscous to an oven-proof casserole, slice the mozzarella and layer on top of the couscous.
Place this in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes, put on high-broil for the last 3 minutes.
Yep, that bowl is looking pretty messy!
My eyes were bigger than my stomach so I made to much couscous to actually fit in the bowl, when you also have to stir in tomatoes and mushrooms, things can get a bit messy…
and you haven’t even seen the kitchen counter top yet!
