Ingredients

1 tbsp (15 mL) butter
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1 onion, chopped
2 stalks of celery, thinly sliced
1 yellow bell pepper, diced
1 cup (250 mL) green beans, cut in pieces
1 can (19 oz/540 mL) diced tomatoes
1/2 cup (125 mL) orange juice
1/2 cup (125 mL) vegetable stock
Salt and ground pepper, to taste
Hot pepper sauce, to taste
1 cup (250 mL) medium grain whole wheat semolina (couscous)

2 tsp (10 mL) dried oregano
2 tbsp (30 mL) fresh mint, chopped or 
2 tsp (10 mL) dried mint
1 1/2 cups (375 mL) Canadian Feta, diced or crumbled

Preparation

In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Sauté the garlic, onion, celery, pepper and beans. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes.

Add the tomatoes, orange juice and stock. Bring to a boil, season and add the hot pepper sauce.

Add the wheat semolina (couscous), stir and cover. Turn off the heat and let stand for about 5 minutes or until the semolina has absorbed nearly all the liquid. Use a fork to separate the grains if necessary. Add the chickpeas, herbs and Feta, mix well and serve immediately.

Tips

Suggestion:
The Vegetarian Couscous with Feta can be served cold. Let cool before adding the Feta, and use a little olive oil and orange juice as a dressing.
