FAST Vegan Pea & Couscous Salad

Posted on

15 minutes start to finish including getting everything out of the pantry. This was one of those thrown together quick kind of meals. It is fast, informal and healthy in a vegan way – meaning it provides good carbs, healthy fats, B vitamins and some protein. To cook this you will need measuring cups and spoons, a medium pan (bigger than a sauce pan, smaller than a stock pot), a knife, and a large spoon.

  • 1 cup water
  • 2 – 15 oz. cans of salt free peas, drained
  • 1 cup couscous
  • 1 medium avocado
  • 1 Tbsp butter substitute, heaping scoop guys. Live dangerously.
  • 5Tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 Tbsp garlic powder
  • +/- 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • Pepper (and salt) to taste
  • Add hot sauce (or ketchup) if desired

Put the water on to boil. Open and drain the cans of peas. When the water boils add the couscous and remove from heat. Using the knife cut the avocado in half, compost the pit, squeeze the goods into the cooling couscous. Use the knife to chop the avocado into the couscous. Add the butter substitute, yeast and garlic powder. Use the spoon to stir everything in. Add the peas and stir them in. Add the oil last, adjusting for desired consistency, top with pepper and serve. Bring hot sauce to the table to give it some zing. Done. Makes four servings, more or less depending on your serving size.
