Abundant Life Blog Hop


Guess what guys?!?!
It's Thursday! It's time for the Abundant Life Blog Hop!

This week has been a crazy one.

I can't believe tomorrow is already Friday!

I'm ready for the weekend...how about you?

Today I am going to be sharing a recipe that is so yummy and healthy.
You will love it! I found this recipe HERE

I think I have tried Couscous once before but totally forgot what it tasted like.

So I decided to give it another go and try this recipe.

I have been having so much fun trying
all these different recipes. I love food!


Southwest Couscous Salad with Chipotle Lime Vinaigrette
1 1/2 c water
1/2 tsp salt
1 c uncooked couscous
1 (15 oz) can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 jalapeno, seeded and minced
1/2 c red onion
2 plum tomatoes, seeded and diced
1/4 c fresh cilantro, minced

Chipolte Lime Vinaigrette

4 1/2 tbsp olive oil
4 1/2 tbsp lime juice
2 tsp adobo sauce (from canned chipotle chilies)
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1 tsp toasted cumin seed, crushed
3/4 tsp dried basil
3/4 tsp sugar

Bring water and salt to a boil. Add couscous, cover, and remove from heat. Allow to stand 5 to 10 minutes, until all moisture is absorbed. Fluff with a fork, and transfer to a large mixing bowl. Cool. Add beans, jalapeno, red onion, and tomato. In food processor, combine all vinaigrette ingredients. Process until well combined. Add to mixing bowl, and stir well. Stir in fresh cilantro. Serve and enjoy!
