I found this recipe for Vegan Southwest Couscous and thought I would give it a try. My husband is from Texas and loves Southwestern cuisine, but he is not nearly as concerned about healthy eating as I am. I can proudly say that despite his initial skepticism about this recipe, he went back for seconds!
Vegan Southwest Couscous
1 box Near East Pearlized couscous (regular will do, but I like the texture of the pearlized)
1 can black beans
1 can shoepeg corn
1 red pepper, chopped
2 Roma tomatoes, chopped
Garlic salt, chili powder and cumin to taste (I use a lot because I like it spicy). Cayenne pepper is good if you want it really hot.
Cilantro, chopped (for garnish or mixed in). I adore cilantro so I mixed mine in.
You could add yellow and orange peppers as well. The more veggies, the merrier!
