Veggie Couscous Cakes
2 cups couscous, cooked
1 cup broccoli florets, chopped
1 red bell pepper (1 cup cut), cut in bite size pieces
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/4 teaspoon parsley flakes
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
Salt and pepper to taste
3 tablespoons olive oil
Make couscous according to the box instructions. When done, transfer the cooked couscous to a bowl and let it cool while you prepare veggies. Wash and cut broccoli and pepper. Add them to the bowl with couscous. In a small bowl mix eggs, add parsley, paprika, garlic, salt and pepper to it. Mix. Add egg to the bowl with couscous and veggies. Mix everything well so that the couscous, veggies and eggs are evenly distributed throughout.
In a large nonstick skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. With damp hands, form the couscous mixture into 6 patties about 1 to 1 and 1/2 inch thick or so. Carefully place the couscous cakes in the pan and cook until golden, turning once, about 3 to 4 minutes per side.
Remove from the heat and serve. You can serve them with salad or by themselves!
