Meatless Monday 4/18

April 18, 2011 by AnnMarie

Another great recipe tried and tested by Joya. She’s racking up some serious contest points!

Green Tea Couscous

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 scallions, finely chopped
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken or vegetable stock
  • 1 single-serve bag green tea
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 1/2 cups couscous
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped mint leaves, a couple of handfuls
  • 1/2 seedless cucumber, peeled and chopped
  • chopped arugula
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper


Heat the olive oil in sauce pot over medium heat and add the scallions. Season with salt and pepper and saute 2 to 3 minutes. Add stock and bring to a boil, secure tea bag to handle of the pot, and let steep for 1 minute. Remove the tea bag, stir in honey and couscous. Turn off the heat, stir in mint, and cover the pot. Let couscous stand 5 minutes, then fluff with fork and transfer to a serving bowl. Add the cucumber, arugula and lemon and lime juice. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, toss to combine and serve.

From Rachel Ray

(Next time I make it, I’m going to saute a little garlic with the scallions. I think I will add a few extra tea bags, as well. We had it with a lamb dinner along side a Greek Salad,but for Meatless Monday, you could just serve it with a Greek Salad and no meat dish!)

Happening In the Gym

@bestfriendsanimalsociety I'm a little windblown and hopefully don't sound to desperate, but here is my impassioned plea to hire me for your Sanctuary Ambassador/Tour Guide position open in Kanab. Resume coming to you soon (Ann Marie Route)! And friends? Boxing Bunnies gang? Comment here to let them know why you think I'd make a great Ambassador for this amazing animal sanctuary! Yay, c'mon team! Bat bag. Always a favorite. Huginator. A friendly reminder that you don't need a gym or even a building to do this. Just saying.
