Little bowls of perfection, that’s how I would describe this couscous salad. This recipe us packed full of everything you need to keep you healthy, full, and moving.
Have you ever wondered what bliss tasted like? Well wonder no more! I present to you the very definition of the word all wrapped up in one easy recipe. Okay, so that might be a little dramatic… or it might not be. You will have to try it and let me know. But what I do know, is that you are going to like this recipe (and that’s not me being dramatic). Even your family will enjoy this one.
This couscous salad is packed with all our favourite ingredients and the best part is, you probably have all of these in your kitchen right now. So that’s dinner sorted, right?
Let’s take a look at why you are going to love this recipe.
To make this recipe, you will need 15 minutes and 13 simple ingredients. Quick and easy is always great when it comes to filling, important meals.
The main stars of this recipe are the couscous and the tofu. Couscous is an incredible source of vitamin and minerals, including calcium, phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, and folate – all of which can aid to stronger and healthier bones and muscles. One of the amazing things about couscous is that it is highly adaptable. It doesn’t have a taste, but will take on any flavours you are cooking with, making it perfect for just about any dish.
Tofu is just as impressive in its own right. Although it looks plain and boring, tofu packs a real punch when it comes to nutrition. Hiding behind the surface is a great source of protein, iron, and calcium. Not to mention it contains all 8 essential amino acids.
Throw in some salad and flavour to go with our couscous and tofu, and you have a winner.
Hint: This meal is very adaptable to different flavours and varieties of ingredients. It is also the perfect meal for anyone in the family. Feel free to change it up to suit your family’s requirements (they may not be tofu fans, especially if you have children).
Couscous salad is the perfect meal for you and your family because it’s:
I have designed this recipe to make 4 servings as I think it’s perfect for sharing with friends and family. If you have any leftovers, you can store them in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 24 hours (perfect for lunch the next day) and reheat when you consume. In case you don’t have a tribe to feed, you can half the list of ingredients to create fewer servings.
And that’s it! My couscous salad in a nut shell.
