Arugala Pesto Couscous


This is a really easy dish and depending what you add in, it can be the main dish. I like to just add tomatoes and sometimes kale. You can also sub the couscous for your grain of choice. It’s pretty good in Bulgar.


  • 8oz Israeli Couscous (or any grain)
  • 6 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 cup walnuts
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup parsley leaves
  • 3 cups arugula
  • 3/4 cup - 1 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 large tomatoes chopped


Step 1

Cook your grains. Make pesto while it cooks.

Step 2

In a food processor or blender process garlic, then add walnuts.

Step 3

Once nuts are broken down add salt, parsley, and arugula, and add oil slowly, scraping down the sides as needed.

Step 4

Add pesto to grains to taste and toss, add tomatoes. You'll have left over pesto. Make some pasta tomorrow!

Step 5
