Friday, March 29, 2013 Couscous with Lemon & Sage

I had some frozen peas taking up space in the freezer, a quick search for ideas one what to do with them lead to this recipe. The cooking time was quick, only as long as the time it takes to boil water plus 5 minutes. It was a wonderful dinner, light and delicious.

The Couscous
2 Cups Broth
1/2 tsp Salt
1Tbsp Butter
1 Box Plain Couscous (about 5 servings)
1 Cup Peas

The Mixings
3 Tbsp Brown Butter
10 Sage Leaves
Salt & Pepper

In medium saucepan, bring broth, salt, butter to a boil. Stir in couscous, peas & cover. Remove from heat, let stand 5 minutes.
In the mean time, Zest and Juice Lemon and set aside. Rinse and finely chop the Sage leaves, brown the Butter and as it turns a caramel color add Sage. This should bubble a little, remove from the heat as it calms down. Fluff couscous and peas, mixing in Browned Butter, Sage, Lemon Zest & Lemon Juice, Salt & Pepper.
