Turkey Cous Cous Skillet

Have you ever tried couscous?  If you haven't - you are missing out.  It's a tiny pasta and is delicious.  You can learn about it here.  My family loves it. 

The other night we grilled up some turkey burgers but did not eat all of them.  So, I decided to chop up the leftover burgers along with some veggies and toss them with some couscous.  Easy and delish!

Turkey CousCous Skillet
1 Cup CousCous
1 and 1/2 Cups Water
1/2 Cube Chicken & Tomato Bouillon Cube (Knorr) OR Chicken Bouillon (enough bouillon to flavor the water)
1 Pound Ground Turkey
6 Green Onions or Scallions
1 (large) Tomato
4 oz Feta Cheese
1 Teaspoon Oregano
1 Teaspoon Lemon Pepper
Salt & Pepper
Tzatziki Sauce (optional)

Step 1:  Prepare the couscous.  In a pot, add the water and the bouillon.  Bring to a boil.  Once boiling, add the couscous.  Cover and remove from heat, set aside and let stand for 10 minutes.

Step 2:  Spray a large skillet with non-stick cooking spray.  Add the ground turkey (season with the salt and pepper) and the cook over med-high heat until browned, crumbled and cooked through. 

Step 3:  While the meat is cooking, prepare your vegetables.  Clean and dice the tomato.  Clean and slice the green onion.  Add to the meat during the last few minutes of cooking along with the oregano and lemon pepper.  You just want to heat up the tomatoes and onions, not really cook them.

Step 4:  Once the meat is cooked and the veggies are combined with it, stir in the cooked couscous and the feta cheese.

For additional flavor, serve with a dollop of Tzatsiki sauce.  Viola!  Easy and delicious :)  Serves 4-6 people.
