Enjoy this simple yet savory Mediterranean cous-cous salad from the Gaiam Café kitchen . Perfect as a healthy, vegetarian side dish.
Serves 4 to 6
In a medium-sized pot, add vegetable stock, paprika, tumeric, onion powder, salt and pepper. Bring liquid to a boil then lower to a simmer. Cook broth for five to six minutes, then add the cous-cous. Stirring constantly, cook until cous-cous is nice and tender. It should take about 12 to 15 minutes, then drain and let cool.
In a medium-sized sauté pan, add garlic and a few tablespoons of olive oil. Start this in a cold pan. Place on burner and turn stove on medium heat. Once garlic starts to turn light brown, add onion, celery, carrot, red pepper, salt and pepper. Cook for about five to six minutes or until fragrant. Then add tomato and remove from heat. Let mixture cool down.
In a large bowl, combine the vegetable mixture and cous-cous. Add fresh herbs, cheese and olives. Refrigerate salad for at least two hours before serving. This salad can be made a day ahead. You can also make this salad with raw vegetables.
