Asparagus Couscous

As always, we are looking for seasonable side dishes to serve for dinner. Since our CSA doesn’t start for a couple more months, we thought for spring we’d eat a lot of asparagus and peas.  Well, adapted from this Martha Stewart recipe I saw on Pinterest, we made this very simple (and quick!) Asparagus Couscous.  We used chicken stock and a few squeezes of lime juice instead of just water for more flavor.

Cut your asparagus into 1-inch pieces and boil in 2C chicken stock for 2 or 3 minutes.
