Unstuffed peppers with seasoned couscous and carrots


  • 1 Cup Whole Wheat Couscous
  • 2 Peppers (chopped)
  • 1/2 Cup Chopped Carrots
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Basil
  • 1 Tablespoon Oregano
  • 2 Teaspoons Onion powder
  • 1 1/4 Cup Water or Vegetable Broth
  • 1 Clove Garlic (crushed)
  • 1 Chopped Vegan Sausage Link

Combine all the ingredients (but the sausage) in a microwavable bowl.  Microwave on high for 4-5 minutes (until couscous is cooked). Pan fry the chopped sausage, and add to the bowl and serve.

Want to make it even easier: Trade the sausage links for Trader Joe’s Soy Chorizo. Stir in half a package to the cooked couscous mix and microwave for an additional minute.
