I found this recipe on www.allrecipes.com, and altered it slightly, using lemon juice instead of vinegar. This is an unbelievably simple recipe that puts together the friendly flavours of couscous, chickpeas, plum tomatoes, and cucumbers, accompanied with the tang of lemon! This is great for quick meals when there's no time to spare!
I have tried many recipes trying to duplicate the dry Mexican rice you get at the restaurant. After a lot of tweaking this hits the mark. My hubby loved it and said this is the real deal. Hope you enjoy it!
Quick and simple to make. A great way to add some variety to the childrens' diet. Great either with a salad, veges or made into a burger. This recipe is from Edgell's. To make this dish gluten free ensure your spices, chutney and curry powder are all labeled as gluten free. I found these to be crumbly so added an egg and flour for binding.
This is not gourmet, and far from authentic, but it is tasty and very easy to make... and excellent weeknight meal. I like to make extra to bring to work for lunch, and I always make twice as much rice as I really need for other dishes, for just this purpose. I'm totally addicted to it now, I have it at least once a week.
From Cooking Light. The recipe originally called for water, but I believe that broth adds a great deal of flavor. I use either chicken or vegetable broth. You can also make this with regular barley, but need to adjust the cooking time in the first step.
This was one of the most popular dishes at Nancy Mehagian's vegetarian restaurant on the island of Ibiza and she shared it in her book "Siren’s Feast: An Edible Odyssey". There are two secret (and essential) ingredients in this recipe - fine bulgur (which has the added benefit of cooking quickly) and tamari soy sauce. This really is the best tabbouleh you will ever make! Dish should be chilled before serving.
We ate this at our local Indian restaurant recently. I decided to make it myself and we reckoned it was better as our ingedients were fresher! It was very rustic, so I wouldn't stress about how anything was cut..
