Requiring only 5 ingredients and 30 minutes to prepare, this simple recipe packs a ton of flavor. Red onion gives it a nice bit of savory flavor while raisins pack a nice sweetness. Pair this dish with a piece of meat or fish and some sauteed or roasted vegetables for a complete meal that is sure to keep you satisfied. The soy sauce in this dish stands in for salt and adds a extra kick of flavor.

Ingredients

  • 200 grams couscous
  • 1 red onion
  • 1/3 cup raisins
  • 1 teaspoon butter oil
  • black soy sauce (Japanese sauce: the Kikkoman brand is ideal because it is not too salty)

Directions

  1. Boil water.
  2. In a shallow plate, pour the couscous and pour the boiling water over it (the water should just cover the semolina). Cover the plate and let the couscous absorb the water (at leat 10 minutes). Fluff using a fork.
  3. Soak the raisins in a little bit of warm water.
  4. Slice the red onion and brown it gently in a pan with the butter or oil.
  5. Add the couscous and brown it, stirring regularly.
  6. When the couscous is nicely browned, add the drained raisins and soy sauce (about a tablespoon: it replaces the salt, so adjust quantity to your taste). Stir well for a good minute.
  7. Serve it with grilled vegetables or fish, and for the children with a sliced hot dog, added at the same time as the couscous.

This was quite good. It had a nice balance of salty and sweet. I served a big pile of it with salad and fruit and it was the perfect vegetarian meal.
