Recipe for a Mediterranean Couscous with olives, artichokes, dried tomatoes & parsley. Perfect to bring to a BBQ and super quick to make.
This Mediterranean Couscous is awesome bring to BBQs and Potlucks! I love the combination of the green olives, artichokes, dried tomatoes and parsley – it’s super summer-y! You can eat it either warm & cold – which makes it the perfect side dish to bring to any gatherings.
It’s amazing how quick this couscous dish can be made – really. Couscous is the perfect choice if you need the food – like NOW! We actually had a super spontaneous picnic at the riverside and I brought this dish. It’s also a neat & healthy dish for the summer – add some fresh roasted veggies, tofu or tempeh to it and you’ll have a quick and easy lunch!

- Heat the water for the couscous in a large pot, add in the lime juice, za'atar and salt.
- Once the water is boiling, take the pot off the stovetop and add in the couscous and put the lid back on (the couscous will be ready in a minute or two).
- Meanwhile chop the parsley, olives, artichokes and dried tomatoes in small pieces.
- Fluff the couscous with a fork, add in the chopped olives, artichokes, tomatoes and parsley and give it a good mix. Serve warm or cold!
