My husband invented these the other day and they are to die for. OH. SO. GOOD.
I can’t get enough of them. Either in a grilled flour tortilla or naked in lettuce–it’s finger licking good! Can you believe we just grabbed a few things out of our fridge and threw them together?
We use couscous as a filling because it’s something our kids recognize and love to eat. What is couscous?
Couscous (pronounced Koose-Koose) is considered a pasta which is made of small granules of semolina flour, and is traditional in North African cuisine. It is also available made from whole-wheat flour, which slightly increases the fiber and boosts nutritional value. It is a culinary ingredient used as a substitution for rice or quinoa, it is very versatile, and it’s preparation requires little more than the addition of hot water and fluffing with a fork, then served as a side dish or in recipes, taking on the flavor of whatever you cook it with. Ways to serve Couscous include adding it to soups, mixing it with sautéed vegetables, and as a breakfast cereal. ~The Science of Eating.
We topped the couscous with Rachel Randolph’s Recipe for White Bean Guacamole Dip and added pine nuts, cherry tomatoes, fresh avocados, cucumbers, and olives. I added a splash of my favorite hot sauce and could not stop eating these babies….did I mention they were good?
- Flour or corn Tortillas or freshly washed Romaine lettuce
- 1 box Couscous
- White Bean guacamole Dip from We Laugh, We Cry, We Cook
- Optional Toppings
- Cherry tomatos
- Pine Nuts
- Sliced black olives
- Avocado slices
- Gather items and cook couscous according to package directions. Begin with tortilla or lettuce leaf and slather on a thin layer of the White Bean Dip. Next add 1/4 cup of couscous, and a sprinkle of pine nuts. Top with any fresh topping of your choice.
- Then roll your wrap and grill on a George Forman grill for about 3 minutes. Serve with your favorite veggies and hot sauce.
- We served these to our kids with baby carrots and a 1/4 cup of couscous, just in case they weren't fans of our fridge binge of a wrap. But it was a hit!
