Vegetable Couscous with Yogurt Sauce


Whole grain couscous cooks up quickly and is a great dish to jazz up with colorful veggies and protein-packed nuts. This recipe comes to us from Veggi Rider, a fun, illustrated app designed to help parents and kids get excited about cooking with veggies!

Food for Thought: Couscous is a popular dish from North Africa, where the Sahara Desert is. Doesn’t cooked couscous look a little bit like a desert’s sand dunes? Pretend you are a camel crossing the giant desert of your dinner plate. Don’t forget to create a beautiful oasis (a small watering hole) out of yogurt sauce.

Cooking Tip of the Week: Turmeric is a bright orange spice that’s packed with antioxidants. It has a slightly bitter flavor, but it is mostly used for its color. If you can’t find it in the spice aisle, you can leave it out or substitute curry powder for an extra punch of flavor.
