This is for all the Israeli cous cous fans (waving to Dale!). We made our annual pilgrimage to Trader Joe’s last week and scarfed up three one-pound bags of their pseudo Israeli cous cous. They call it Harvest Grains Medley. I found the same brand on Amazon, but at twice the price of buying it at Trader Joe’s.
Last night I used up the last of my current stock before opening a new package next time. Earlier in the afternoon I had cooked up a batch of wild rice in the rice cooker. No other method does as wonderful a job as the rice cooker! I’ve been making it for over fifty years, and this is just THE most successful outcome ever.
I sautéed some onions, red peppers, and mushrooms (forgot the celery) and then added the wild rice and cous cous, seasoning with poultry seasoning and Montreal Steak Seasoning. It was beyond delicious. The butternut squash provided a yummy accompaniment. The meat is flour/egg/crumbed boneless chicken thigh. You can tell where my true interests lie, yes? ;->
The best part? There is enough leftover for another meal just like this one!
