“Roasted pecans, sauteed onion, mushrooms, and garlic marry beautifully with Parmesan, sun-dried tomato pesto, and couscous. If you wish, stir in cooked chicken and more veggies to make it a complete meal. I regularly add shelled edamame for a boost of meatless protein.”

Directions

  1. Spread the pecan pieces onto a baking sheet and place in a cold oven.
  2. Heat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) to begin roasting the pecans. Roast until aromatic, 20 to 30 minutes.
  3. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook the mushrooms, onion, and garlic in the melted butter until softened, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
  4. Return the skillet to the heat. Melt 2 teaspoons butter in the skillet. Stir the water into the butter; bring to a boil. Put the couscous in a glass bowl; pour the butter and water mixture over the couscous. Immediately cover the bowl with plastic wrap and allow to sit until the couscous absorbs all of the moisture, 7 to 10 minutes. Fluff with a fork. Stir the toasted pecans, the mushroom mixture, the pesto, and Parmesan cheese through the couscous. Season with salt and pepper to serve.

This is pretty good, though there's a tang in the pesto that is a little off to my taste. I was wary about the pecans but they were the best part! Glad I didn't leave them out. I did leave out the mushrooms, as I'm not a fan, and I didn't use an entire onion either (maybe 1/3). I'll be sure to make it again.

This was perhaps the most successful meal with my new vegetarian family yet! My wife and step daughter want it weekly so I will probably make it monthly. What a fantastic combination of ingredients. Watch the pecans though. They cook very fast and burn very easily. I had to cook 2 batches of pecans b/c they burned based on the cooking time.
