“Couscous, the food so nice, they named it twice”

from the film Pineapple Express

What better way to enjoy great food and discover new dishes and new and not so new  local venues than to attend this year’s Philadelphia Food Show at the Valley Forge convention Center.

This year my booth will be a pop-up sampling booth of recipes from my books along with book signings.

I am really honored to be part of this year’s event  I will be signing copies of my latest book and sampling  some delicious recipes with one or more   couscous dishes to share for tasting!

Please stop by and say Hi!

Cous Cous with Tuna and Veggies

1/2 cup couscous

4 cups vegetable broth

1 zucchini

1 can of tuna

4 roasted peppers (from Roland Foods)

1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

2 ounces small cherry or grape tomatoes

small handful mint or fresh basil leaves

Measure couscous and place in bowl. Cut zucchini into long sticks. Place olive oil in saute pan and saute zucchini sticks till golden. Set aside.

Bring vegetable broth to a boil and place  into couscous. Stir until couscous is puffy, add in a pat of butter and stir. Continue stirring till most liquid has ben absorbed by couscous. Separate couscous with a fork.

Flake tune in separate dish. Add into couscous. Place in cheery or grape tomatoes that have been cut in half. Add in zucchini and incorporate into couscous.

Garnish the plate with mint and basil…
