About a month ago. I bought a box of couscous from Trader Joes. I held on to it until I figured out what and how I wanted to prepare it.

I determined that I should make it like a stir fry.  Being that couscous is a staple for Israeli dishes, I decided to experiment with my box.

I prepared this side dish just as I would make fried rice and this is the results.  

1 cup couscous

2 cups water

1 cinnamon stick

1 bay leaf

2 Tbs olive oil

1/2 red onion sliced

2 Garlic Cloves

1/8 cup walnuts

1/8 cup chopped spinach

1 tsp Himalayan salt

1 handful dried cranberries


Boil couscous as directed on box.

I boiled couscous in water, bay leaf, and a cinnamon stick. Cover.

Drizzle oil in skillet.

Add onion and minced garlic. Cook approximately 1-2 minutes.

Add walnuts. Stir.

Add Chopped spinach. Stir.

Add the couscous with the bay leaf and cinnamon stick. Stir. Approximately 4 minutes.

Season with salt and Black Pepper (optional)

Top with cranberries. Stir. 1 minute.
