You forgot I cooked, huh?

Yeah, I did too. 

I'm not sure if I've just been busy, or lazy (probably a combination of the two) but I've barely been cooking these days. So last night I decided to wing it, and came up with a pretty tasty Israeli couscous creation. 

I figured it's blog-worthy, not to mention it's been forever since I posted a recipe... so here you go!

Israeli Couscous w/ Avocado & Sun-dried Tomatoes


Ingredients:

3/4 cup Israeli couscous (or however much your heart desires!)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup water
1 small avocado
1 lemon
Lemon pepper
Handful of sun-dried tomatoes

Directions:

1. Cook Israeli couscous and olive oil together in a small sauce pan until couscous starts to brown. Add water, and bring to a boil. 

2. Let sit until the couscous absorbs the water. Remove from heat. 

3. Mix in avocado, and juice from lemon. Stir until avocado is smooth. 

4. Add lemon pepper to your tasting, and sprinkle sun-dried tomatoes on top.

This is enough for one serving, and probably took a total of 15 minutes max to make. If you're like me and love both avocado and lemon, this is right up your alley. Quick and easy, my type of recipe!

Happy Humpday!

I have had a major fail at cooking lately too! It just seems to take way too long to do and when I'm hungry I want to eat then...not 30 minutes later when the food is ready! This looks awesome though! I may have to give it a try!
