Yesterday I picked up our CSA share filled with a bunch of fun veggies to use. I usually plan our meals for the week but this week has been crazy for me so I had to whip up dinner on the spot. Our dinner was from our share with the exception of the whole wheat couscous, salad dressing (homemade), and tofu.
To help me cook I enjoyed an end of the day, post ab workout beer:
Green Tomato & Herb Couscous
- 4 servings of cooked couscous (cook according to the package)
- 1 medium green tomato, diced
- 1 bunch of curly parsley, chopped
- 1 bunch of green onions, thinly sliced
- Lemon-Tahini Dressing
- Juice of 1 lemon
- 1 tablespoon tahini
- 3-4 tablespoons olive oil
- 1/2 teaspoon cayenne (optional)
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
In a large bowl toss together the couscous, green tomato, parsley and green tomato. In a small bowl whisk together the dressing ingredients; start with 3 tablespoons of olive oil and add more to taste or thin if necessary. Add the dressing to the couscous mixture and toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
After dinner I got sucked into reading The Hunger Games. I started the book yesterday morning and couldn’t take my hands off it! Instead of organizing like I had originally planned to do I spent the night reading ….and I finished the book. SO GOOD! While reading I took a short break to make a lemon soygurt and berry parfait for dessert.
Q: Are there any books that you have read that you just couldn’t take your hands off of?
Check out Ricki’s Summer Wellness Weekends Event happening over at her blog! You’ll find one of my recipes and a number of other great healthy ones.

Oh man. The hunger games took over my life! I literally stayed up all night to finish the trilogy… And I can’t wait for the movie to come out!!
Yeah, I liked the Hunger Games too! I heard they’re making a movie of them. The cous cous sounds great, I was going to make something similar with quinoa tonight but just made a quick salad to use up some produce. Cute little parfait too.
Looks delicious! I have only had fried green tomatoes (once) and wasn’t entirely fussy on them. Maybe this presentation would be more appeailng! Thanks for linking up your recipe to Wellness Weekends. I’ve asked people to include a link back to the original post. Would you please add one so I can keep your entry included? Thanks! 🙂
