  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 cups cauliflower, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons Moroccan spice mix
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  2. When olive oil is fragrant, add onion and garlic. Sauté for 2-3 minutes.
  3. Add cauliflower, peas, garbanzo beans, and moroccan seasoning to the skillet and sauté for 5-7 minutes, stirring consistently.
  4. Next, add couscous and mix well.
  5. Finally, pour broth into the skillet and bring to a boil.
  6. Once boiling, remove from heat immediately, cover skillet, and let sit covered for 5 minutes or until all the broth is absorbed by the couscous.
  7. Uncover the skillet and fluff the couscous with a fork.
  8. Top with optional toppings and enjoy.

Notes

  • Skillet size: we used a 16-inch skillet, but if you use something smaller, just make sure it is deep enough. A dutch oven would work perfectly!
  • Freezer directions: please scroll up for a through explanation of how to freeze this meal for up to 3 months and how to cook from frozen on the stovetop.
