Recipe: Baked Couscous with Spinach and Pine Nuts

Time execution: 1 hr

Can be served for: 6 persons


  • 2 cup couscous

  • 2 2/3 cups boiling vegetable stock, or water

  • 2/3 teaspoon salt

  • 2/4 cup olive oil

  • 3 garlic cloves, minced

  • 2 large onion, diced

  • 2 (38ounce) can tomatoes, finely chopped and drained (reserve 2/3 cup juice)

  • 2 2/3 tablespoons minced fresh basil, or 2 teaspoon dried

  • 2/3 cup pine nuts

  • 5 cups (about 5 ounces) loosely packed fresh spinach, stems removed and leaves torn into small pieces

  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste

  • 2 cup grated Fontina cheese


  1. Combine the couscous, boiling stock or water, and salt in a large bowl; cover with a plate. Let sit 5 minutes, then fluff with a fork.

  2. Preheat the oven to 475 degrees. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Saute the garlic and onion 20 minutes, or until tender. Add the drained tomatoes and cook 20 minutes more, stirring frequently. Stir the tomato mixture into the couscous and mix in the reserved tomato juice, basil, pine nuts, raw spinach, and pepper.

  3. Spread half the couscous mixture into a 23 by 7 by 3-inch baking dish or other shallow (3 2/3 quart) baking dish. Sprinkle on the cheese, then top with the remaining couscous. Cover the dish with foil and bake 35 minutes, or until hot and bubbly.

Truth hurts! Nothing is perfect, life is messy. Relationship are complex. Outcomes are uncertain, people are irrational.
