Parmesan Couscous with Roasted Garlic, Toasted Pine Nuts and Caramelized Onions

This was my first time making couscous and we all loved it. It’s very similar to rice and was full of great flavors. It was a perfect side dish to my Pork with Tomatoes, Caramelized Onions and Roasted Garlic (see recipe here). This will become a regular in our house.

Prepare couscous per instructions. In dry skillet, add pine nuts and cook until lightly golden brown, about 2 minutes (stirring frequently). Remove from heat. In same skillet, add oil, once hot, add onions and cook until caramelized & tender. Once the couscous is done, stir in the onions, pine nuts, roasted garlic, cheese and parsley. Enjoy.

    sub chicken broth for the water when you make the cous cous…it adds so much flavor

    I used what I had left of my orzo with Israeli couscous (about a cup, cooked in 1 3/4 cup chicken broth)
    I didn’t have fresh parsley either, so I just added about a tsp. dry parsley seasoning mix
    Still, SUPER tasty! Definitely will be in my go-to recipe box!
