Dirty Cous Cous

In my pantry today:

  • 1/2 c ground sausage off the tube
  • 2 c leftover cous cous
  • 1/5 yellow onion, finely diced
  • 1/2 c broccoli slaw
  • 1 tsp ginger-garlic paste
  • 1 tbsp garlic paste
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt

Because I am currently on a major “destroy all holiday leftovers” bandwagon, today I cleaned out the refrigerator and ordained the tupperware container of Leftover Cous Cous as tonight’s meal, along with its sidekick Open Bag of Slaw. And as I had mistakenly bought too many rolls of sausage for the New Years Day family potluck, this one seemed to insinuate itself.

Start your sausage off on M and flatten with spatula. Let it cook for a minute or so, then start flipping and breaking it up as finely as desired. Once it’s showing almost no pink, add the onion. Let it cook in with the sausage for about 2m, then add the broccoli slaw and mix together. Add your pastes and paprika and continue stir frying pan contents until the slaw begins to yield. Turn off the heat and fold in your couscous, adding salt slowly as you do. Serve once everything is hot, or put the lid on your pan and walk away. I’m not here to judge.
