We are blessed to have a great Mennonite shop in a nearby town where we can get bulk ingredients, and some healthier options like whole wheat cous cous. Admittedly, the whoopie pies we stock up on while there no doubt cancel out the whole wheat benefit, but what are you going to do?
Here's a shot at what you need to gather up.
The proportions for this recipe feed my family of 6, with leftovers for 2 or 3 lunches.
In pan, place:
2 1/2 C water
2 T butter
2 T dry chopped onion
1 T dry parsley
2 tsp. better than bouillon
1 tsp. minced garlic
In bowl, place:
2 C plain cous cous
1/4 C grated parmesan cheese
Put it all together:
Bring the ingredients in the pan to a boil.
Add the dry mixture, stir, cover and remove from heat.
Let stand for 5 minutes, fluff with a fork.
Add salt as needed.
