Couscous salad - a good idea for lunch

Couscous comes from the region of northern Africa and is made from semolina (wheat). Usually served with stews. Couscous has very delicate texture and it is very light which makes it ideal as side for meat dishes. It is also a good substitute for rice or pasta when you are bored with them.


  • cup of couscous
  • 1.5 cups of stock (vegetable or chicken)
  • medium size onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • broccoli
  • 200g feta cheese
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt, pepper, chilli powder


Put couscous in large bowl. Pour the boiling stock into couscous and cover it. Couscous should be ready in approximately 5 minutes. In a frying pan fry finely chopped onion. When the onion is nicely caramelized add chopped garlic. Cut broccoli in smaller pieces and boil it for about 10 minutes. Cut feta cheese into cubes. Mix couscous with olive oil, salt, pepper, chlli, onions and garlic. Add broccoli and feta cheese. Mix everything together. Enjoy!!!
