Couscous Lunch

This salad is simple, heathy, and easy to make.  It's pretty cheap too!  The picture above is the salad I made earlier in the week and the pictures below are of the one I made today.  I added roasted sweet potatoes in the first salad.  Make this with any of your favorite vegetables.  


1/4 cup chopped onion
3/4 cup brocoli florets
1/2 cup chopped red cabbage
1 cup baby kale
1/4 cup corn
1 1/4 cup water
bouillon cube
1/3 cup (heaping) whole wheat couscous 

Throw all of the vegetables into a pan with a splash of water.  Cover and cook until soft.  
 Add 1 1/4 cup water and bring to a boil.  
Add a bouillon cube or two and stir until dissolved.  
 Add a heaping 1/3 cup of couscous.  Turn off the heat, stir and cover for 5 minutes.  
Done!  It tastes great warm, or chilled in the fridge.
