SIDES & SALADS
This has to be one of the most versatile dishes to include in your make-ahead menu. With the dressing kept on the side, the ingredients keep in the refrigerator crisp & fresh the entire week.
An easy work lunch or a quick snack bite, it includes protein, healthy carbs, and raw veggie power.
What you’ll need
Using couscous as the base, add bell peppers, chickpeas, onion, and cucumber. For even more flavor cook the couscous in chicken or vegetable stock. Or, simply add water. When it comes time, toss in a basic country vinaigrette, or plain olive oil.
Add what you like. Varying the ingredients keeps it interesting. Try cilantro, blanched asparagus or kidney beans. Bring along a hardboiled egg.
No need to really measure here, it’s veggies we’re talking about. So load up!
“I’m staying at my desk for lunch today”
Leave this in the break room fridge and I’ll bet it will disappear.
