Couscous Cakes

Couscous is always on our menu. The miracle grain is the perfect side dish basically all the time. But even a die-hard couscous lover can get struck with menu boredom. We instantly fell in love with these couscous cakes from Soni’s Food because we still get to keep couscous on our plate but feel like we are noshing on something completely new.

Soni gave her cakes an Indian flair, but what we also love about this recipe is that you can easily change up your ingredients and have different flavors every time. If you get inspired by your Italian main course, you can use Italian flavors in your couscous cake to reflect that. If you are cooking Asian inspired fish you can use some of the same ingredients to create a cake that fits that meal. Get the picture?

If you are as in love with this recipe as we are, here are the ingredients you need to create them:

  • Whole Wheat Couscous-1 cup
  • Egg-1
  • Egg Yolk-1
  • Mango Chutney-1/3 cup
  • Ground Coriander-1 1/2 tsp
  • Lemon Juice-2 tbsp
  • Lemon Zest-1 tbsp
  • Dried Cranberries-1/4 cup
  • Sliced Almonds-1/4 cup
  • Chopped Parsley-1/2 cup
  • Plain Flour-2 tbsp
  • Salt-to taste
  • Pepper- 1/2 tsp
  • Olive Oil- to shallow fry

Head on over to Soni’s Food for the recipe instructions. You will be blown away how simple they are!
