Whole Wheat Cous Cous with Blue Cheese and Olives

IMG_0695

Cous Cous is such an easy side dish.  It is pretty plain tasting on its own so I’m always going to the pantry or the refrigerator for a few ingredients to stir into it to give it some color and lots of flavor.  Tonight I chose some big, course chopped green olives stuffed with pimento and some crumbled blue cheese.  I prepare the cous cous per package directions adding a splash of olive oil and some all purpose vegetable seasoning for flavor into the water before boiling it.  Often I will replace the water with vegetable or chicken broth for added flavor.

This would also be good with a simple red wine vinaigrette mixed through it.
