Mushroom_CousCous We hope you all had a great weekend. Today we have a simple side dish recipe for you. Sautéed Wild Mushrooms with Israeli Couscous. This is just one of those really great side dish recipes to have in your collection because it’s really simple, and makes such a nice side to any meat. I love the sautéed wild mushrooms in this recipe, but the lemon zest and juice makes this side taste really bright and refreshing. I also love the kick of red pepper flakes which we added. Enjoy!

    I absolutely ADORE giant cous cous, moslty because of it’s fabulous texture. I’ve never been brave enough to cook it home for fear of disappointment, however this recipe looks beautiful! The combination of the mushroom texture with the cous cous, letting all the flavours shine… mouth watering.

    The lemon zest makes this dish! It gives the otherwise earthy couscous a light and fresh twist. Delicious!
