Can't Resist The Cous Cous!

Cous Cous is a very nutritional mix of grains (see here for all you ever wanted, and didn't want to know about cous cous http://www.cliffordawright.com/caw/food/entries/display.php/topic_id/3/id/58/)
It is also very easy to prepare! As many of you know, Matthew and I are living in a studio with only a rice cooker to cook in so our recipes will all be with instructions on how to cook them using a rice cooker! This means that their usually one dish meals and only take 45 minutes!

1 c cous cous (this is really affordable in bulk at your local health food store)
1 1/2 c boiling water
your favorite seasoning (Mrs. dash, spike etc.)
thinly sliced veggies (carrots, squash, celery, broccoli)
2 chicken breasts or fillets of fish

Boil the water in the rice cooker. Place the veggies and meat in the steamer basket over the water and steam till all are cooked. When all are cooked, add the cous cous and your favorite seasoning to the boiling water, stir once and then let sit till all the water is absorbed. To plate put down the cous cous, then the veggies, then the meat. This is one of our favorite and it cooks up in less than 30 minutes.
