This vegan couscous salad is my kind of meal because it’s so easy to throw together.
You can literally have dinner on the table in 15 minutes if you’re having this.
And yes, I do call this dinner. Sure, it can be a side dish too and it makes a perfect side, but it can totally be the main event. It’s super filling and satisfying and topped with a tahini soy dressing it’s pretty much the height of deliciousness.
To ‘cook’ couscous all you have to do is soak it in boiling water. So you add 1 cup of couscous to a bowl and then add 1 cup of boiling water. Cover the bowl and leave it for a few minutes. Then you come back, fluff it with a fork, add a little vegan butter (or olive oil as you like), some salt and pepper, fluff it some more, and there you have it – couscous done.
Mix in some delicious fresh salad goodies like shredded lettuce, cherry tomatoes, sliced cucumber, some sweet corn, sliced olives and sundried tomatoes and you have a stunning salad bowl filled with color.
Add some sliced avocado and mix up a delicious tahini soy dressing to pour over the top, a little cilantro to decorate and boom – the salad of your dreams is ready to eat!
