Couscous with spiced sausage and kale

I’m a big fan of couscous so I always have some in my pantry (multiple types actually) and this is one of my favourite ways to use it. In this dish I like to use a spicy vegan sausage, chopped capsicum and kale. Such a simple combo but the flavours are delicious! Pair it with a fresh hummus and you won't be disappointed.


This is perfect for a midweek or weekend dinner, you can easily double the recipe to serve 4 too.


RECIPE:

Serves 2


2 vegan sausages, sliced into pieces

2 spring onions, sliced

2 cloves garlic, chopped

2 tbsp olive oil

1/2 cup cooked couscous

2 cups kale, chopped into pieces

1 yellow or orange capsicum, diced

1/4 tsp paprika

1/4 tsp ground cumin

Salt & pepper to taste

Lemon juice to drizzle

Hummus for serving


1️ In a large pan, heat the olive oil on a low to medium heat. Add the chopped onion and garlic. Stir and cook for 1-2 mins. Add the chopped sausage pieces and cook for about 5-8 mins or until they start to turn brown.

2️ In a separate small pot heat 1 cup water. Once it starts to boil add the couscous. Remove from heat and let it sit to soak up the water for about 5 mins.

3️ Once water is soaked, fluff it up with a fork and add it to the pan with the sausage. Mix through.

4️ Add the kale chopped into bite sized pieces. Season with the spices, salt & pepper. Mix and add a squeeze of lemon juice. Divide into two bowls and serve with hummus. Enjoy!
