2 cups couscous
Israeli couscous
2 ¼ cups water
or broth
1 ½ tablespoons olive oil
2 cloves garlic
peeled and minced
¼ inch ginger
peeled and minced
1 each scallions, spring or green onions
2 cup mushrooms
button or cremini, sliced
½ cup green bell peppers
½ cup sweet red bell peppers
1 celery
thinly sliced
2 tablespoons soy sauce, tamari
1 tablespoon oyster sauce
regular or vegetarian
½ tablespoons rice vinegar
1 teaspoon sesame oil
¼ cup cilantro
¼ cup pine nuts
toasted, or walnuts


Add the couscous in a large saucepan over high heat, and toast until the couscous starts to become slightly golden, brown and fragrant.

Pour the water or the broth into the saucepan, and bring to a boil.

Lower the heat to medium-low or low to maintain a gentle simmer, and cook for about 10 minutes.

Remove from the heat, and fluff with a fork. Set aside.

Meanwhile heat the olive oil in a medium (10-inch) nonstick skillet until hot.

Add the garlic, ginger, and scallions, stirring constantly, and cook for about 40 seconds until very fragrant.

Add the mushrooms, stirring occasionally, and cook for about 6 minutes or until the mushrooms are browned and most of the water is evaporated.

Stir in the bell peppers and celeries, and cook for about 3 minutes or until the vegetables are just tender but still crisp.

While the vegetables are cooking, whisk all the sauce ingredients in a small bowl until well mixed.

Pour the sauce over the vegetables, stirring well, and cook for about 2 minutes until hot.

Remove from the heat, add the cooked vegetables into the saucepan that couscous is in.

Stir gently until everything is evenly coated and combined.

Taste and season with more sauce ingredients if needed.

Divide among the serving plates, top with cilantro and pine nuts.
