Couscous, where have you been all of my life? Sadly, this lovely gem was not a part of my household until I began making food for my daughter. I knew about couscous, but never really came across it in a ton of recipes. While reading a baby food cookbook, I noticed couscous as a recommended food for babies. I love introducing new foods to my daughter - so I bought a box for her. While feeding her, I found myself eating most of this delightful dish. I love it because it's so simple, healthy, and versatile. Enjoy this easy and delicious dish for a quick weeknight meal, or a yummy lunch treat! Wishing you best dishes and yummy dreams!
Chicken and Hummus Wraps
Flatbread wraps (I buy light sundried tomato)
1 package of chicken tenderloins, or 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into strips
Hummus (We love Sabra original flavored hummus)
Greek vinaigrette dressing (or any other salad dressing - we like to use a light Italian
Mixed greens and tomato
Marinate chicken in the salad dressing for an hour. Cook the chicken in a pan with a tablespoon of olive oil, or on the grill in a grill basket. Spread the hummus on a wrap, place the chicken and lettuce on the hummus and wrap it up! *Optional: You may want to add some feta cheese
1 red pepper
5 Cremini mushrooms
1 clove of garlic
1 box of wheat couscous
Slice all veggies and saute them in a pan with a tablespoon or two of olive oil. Prepare the couscous on the stove according to box directions. Add in sauteed vegetables, a tsp. of salt, and any other seasonings you might like! You can put this couscous inside of the wrap, or eat it alone.
