My new favorite, go to meal. It's quick and good for you. I sometimes just make couscous and then make a salad with tomatoes, cucumber, olives and feta to go with. Serve w/ a side of hummus and perhaps pita bread.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place the couscous in a large bowl and pour 1½ cups hot tap water over the top. Cover and let stand for 5 minutes; fluff with a fork.
  2. Form the beef into 12 small ½-inch-thick patties. Sprinkle with the cumin, oregano, salt and pepper.
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the patties and cook to the desired doneness, 4 minutes per side for medium.
  4. Toss the couscous with the scallions, tomatoes, cucumber, lemon juice, remaining oil, 1¼ teaspoons salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper.
  5. Serve with the burgers and hummus, if using.
