We were getting ready to go out of town for the weekend, so I wanted to use up some of the vegetables left in our refrigerator. I decided to make a quick pilaf with couscous, bell pepper, and some of the leftover shredded carrots and green onion from the Mai Fun Veggie Salad we had the other night. Pilaf is a great way to use up vegetables, since you can use many different combinations with good results.
- 1½ cup chicken broth
- 1½ cup couscous
- 1 green bell pepper, chopped
- ½ cup shredded carrots
- 3 green onions, green part only, chopped
- Bring chicken broth to a boil in a medium sauce pan. Add couscous, remove from heat. Cover and allow to sit for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork.
- Add bell pepper, carrots, and onions, toss to combine.
What do you do with leftover veggies?
