Patrick Aleph, Executive Director of PunkTorah (our parent site) invented this recipe when he was late making food for a potluck with the indie minyan (Jewish fellowship) he belongs to.
Curry Couscous Salad (Parve)
2 Boxes Instant/5-Minute Couscous (make sure it’s parve)
3 Heaping TBSP Yellow Curry Powder
1/4 Cp. Red Wine Vinegar
1/4 Cp. Olive Oil
1/2 Cp. Chopped Green Onion
1/4 Cp. Chopped Walnuts (not Black Walnuts)*
1/4 Cp. Dried Cranberries*
1/4 Cp. Dried Currants*
Salt and Pepper To Taste
Make 1 box of couscous according to directions, but add in the curry power while cooking. After couscous is done, place in your serving dish. Cook another box of couscous, this time plain (without curry powder). Add this to the serving dish. Mix the two (lightly) together. This will give you dark yellow and pale couscous, for great color contrast.
Mix in the green onion, walnuts and dried fruit. Drizzle the olive oil and vinegar on top to serve.
*You can substitute any kind of nuts and dried fruit that you like.
