“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.” - by MRSKNIGHT

- Spread the pecan pieces onto a baking sheet and place in a cold oven.
- Heat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) to begin roasting the pecans. Roast until aromatic, 20 to 30 minutes.
- 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.
- 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 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. ..." See moreWatch 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."
