Lemony Mint Couscous with Chickpea and Edamame
1 box of instant couscous prepared according to package directions, I used Near East brand
1/2 can chickpeas
Couple leaves of mint
salt 'n' peppa
1 Prepare couscous according to package directions. Pour into large bowl.
2 In a separate bowl, combine juice of one lemon with the chickpeas and mix together.
Season with salt and pepper.
3 Mix the lemony chickpeas with couscous, then add the edamame.
4 Slice some mint leaves up and throw into couscous mixture and combine.
5 Juice second lemon on top of the whole salad and combine throughout.
I bought a set of these rich brown lacquer bowls yesterday seen in the picture above.
I love the cascading pattern on the edges of the bowls. What I also liked was that every
bowl was different and had a unique mark by the artist. This way, I know that it was not
manufactured, but rather handmade.
Here is a somewhat better shot of the colored edge of the bowls.
Also, a big shout out to peachkins for
