Ingredients

  • 1 cup dehydrated sun-dried tomatoes

  • 1 ½ cups water

  • ½ (10 ounce) package couscous

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil

  • 3 cloves garlic, pressed

  • 1 bunch green onions, chopped

  • cup fresh basil leaves

  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro, chopped

  • ½ lemon, juiced

  • salt and pepper to taste

  • 4 ounces portobello mushroom caps, sliced

Directions

  1. Place the sun-dried tomatoes in a bowl with 1 cup water. Soak 30 minutes, until rehydrated. Drain, reserving water, and chop.

  2. In a medium saucepan, combine the reserved sun-dried tomato water with enough water to yield 1 1/2 cups. Bring to a boil. Stir in the couscous. Cover, remove from heat, and allow to sit 5 minutes, until liquid has been absorbed. Gently fluff with a fork.

  3. Heat the olive oil in a skillet. Stir in the sun-dried tomatoes, garlic, and green onions. Cook and stir about 5 minutes, until the green onions are tender. Mix in the basil, cilantro, and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper. Mix in the mushrooms, and continue cooking 3 to 5 minutes. Toss with the cooked couscous to serve.
