1 C couscous
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp salt or to taste
1 1/4 C boiling water
1 3/4 C cooked black beans (or 1 15-oz can black beans, drained & rinsed)
1 C fresh corn, cooked or defrosted frozen corn (I didn’t have so left out & added tomatoes instead)
1/2 C finely diced onion
1/4 C finely minced fresh cilantro
1 jalapeno (or more), seeded & diced
2 tbsp olive oil
3-4 tbsp fresh squeezed lime juice
Place couscous, cumin, & salt in a large heatproof bowl & pour 1 C boiling water on top. Cover & let sit until all liquid is absorbed, 10 minutes or more. Fluff with fork.
Toss in the rest of the ingredients & let sit for about 30 minutes to blend flavors.
I enjoyed it with some corn on the cob from the Farmers' Market & a Boca Gardenburger with tomato, lettuce, onion, organic ketchup, & mustard.
Perfect for a picnic, now if only the weather had cooperated!
