How to make Couscous with Goat Cheese and Green Beans
This is a creamy, delicious dish that I created on a boring Tuesday evening. Not so boring anymore!!
In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add garlic and shallot. Saute for 1 minute. Then add the green beans, thyme leaves, lemon juice, and the couscous. Heat for about 5 minutes, constantly stirring until the couscous starts to brown. Slowly pour in the wine while stirring.
Add the stock. Season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer and cover. Cook for about 10 minutes. Then, add the spinach on top and cover again. After two more minutes, remove from the heat and let stand for about 3-5 minutes. Stir in the goat cheese until melted and serve with some fresh grated cheese.
