Ingredients:

1 cup uncooked couscous (the tri-colored looks really pretty)
1 cup water

1 tsp black pepper
1 pint cherry tomatoes
1 bunch green onions
1 container reduced fat crumbled feta cheese
2 T. olive oil
1 T. lemon juice

Method:

Bring water to boil in medium saucepan. Turn off heat and add couscous. Cover and let stand five minutes.

Fluff with fork, stirring in olive oil, black pepper and lemon juice.

Dump fluffed couscous into a big bowl. Add thinly sliced green onions, halved cherry tomatoes and feta cheese. Mix it all up and stick it in the fridge. Serve cold.

If you don’t eat it all in one go you can add some more olive oil the next day to moisten it.

 
 

No Fat Vegitarian Taco Filling February 2, 2006

Filed under: Healthy,Main Dish,Vegitarian — Carrie @ 7:43 pm

1 red bell pepper, peeled, seeded, diced
1 dl rice
2 dl water
1 can beans of your choice
1 can crushed tomatos
1 packet taco seasoning

Mix it all together in a pot and let simmer for 25 minutes or until rice is done. (To give it more flavor you can throw in chopped onion and minced garlic. You probably should soften that up in a little oil first though).
