Strawberry Spinach Couscous

Prep time: 30-45 minutes
Cook time: 30-45 minutes (to caramelize the onions)
Servings: 6


1-1/2 cups dry couscous
2 cups fresh spinach (stems removed and roughly chopped)
1/2 to 3/4 lb fresh strawberries, chopped
1 onion, chopped and caramelized
4 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp red wine vinegar
fresh lemon zest of 1/2 lemon
2 tbsp roasted pine nuts
1 tsp dried oregano (or 1 tbsp fresh)
salt and pepper to taste


1. Cook your chopped onions over medium-low heat for 30-45 minutes until they caramelize. Add water if they get too dry, and sprinkle some salt on while cooking.
2. Rinse your spinach and remove the stems, roughly chop into mostly large strips.
3. Toast your pine nuts by placing in a cast iron pan, over high heat. They will brown quickly, in about 2 minutes.
4. Rinse and pre-cut your strawberries. Set them aside for later.
5. Mix together the olive oil, vinegar, toasted pine nuts, oregano, salt and pepper.
6. Zest the lemon and add to the oil and pine nut mixture.
7. While the couscous sits, combine the caramelized onions, oil mixture, and spinach in a pan and saute over medium-high heat until the spinach just begins to wilt.
8. Combine spinach mixture, fully cooked couscous, and cut strawberries in a bowl. Serve immediately or chill for a side salad.
