Cook couscous according to directions.

I doubled the recipe so that we could have leftovers for the next few days.

Let’s begin with the recipe……

Chop 1 red onion:

Drain & rinse 1 can of garbanzo beans:

Chop up some little tomatoes, sun dried tomatoes (half of the TJ’s jar), two handfuls of basil, 2 lemons & 1 jar of marinated artichokes:

Open 1 package of crumbled feta:

Mix those ingredients with the Cous-Cous.

Make sure to add some Extra-Virgin Olive Oil.

Squeeze the lemons on top & mix. Add salt & pepper to taste.

Serve in a bowl:

It’s pretty good with grilled sausage on top:

Now you have a tasty meal & a few leftovers to last you a few days. The end.

    I just found your site via Not Martha and maybe another link. Wonderful! I always thought TJs should have more blog posts. They should really be paying you a salary. Keep it up!
