Heavenly delicious Warm Broccoli Couscous Salad with Sweet Mustard Dressing
We love when salads are not just a side dish, but the main protagonist. Our current copy feels called to this role. Rightly so, we think.
Ingredients for 3 servings:
For the salad:
700 g of broccoli
3 spring onions
3 tablespoons of olive oil
300 grams of couscous
For the dress:
5 stalks of chickpeas
1 tablespoon of medium hot mustard
2 tablespoons of agave syrup
1 tablespoon of vinegar
5 tablespoons of olive oil
fresh herbs (for garnish, eg dill)
25 minutes (including 15 minutes baking time)
And this is how it is done:
Preheat the oven (160 degrees convection). Wash the broccoli and divide it into small florets. Peel and finely chop the onions. Rinse and dice the tomatoes, removing the greens first.
Toss the broccoli with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Then spread it on a baking sheet covered with baking paper and bake it in the oven for 15 minutes. Return to the middle.
Meanwhile, prepare the couscous according to package directions.
Also mix the sauce. Wash and chop the chickpeas. Then mix the remaining ingredients and season with salt and pepper.
Finally, let the broccoli cool for a short time, fluff the couscous with a fork and mix the broccoli, couscous, tomatoes and onion pieces. Fold in the sauce, sprinkle with fresh herbs and serve immediately.
We know salads as a fresh meal with all kinds of crunchy vegetables. But have you ever tried a lukewarm salad? Our Broccoli Couscous Salad doesn’t arrive cold on the plate, so it feels like a real meal. Perfect if you’re feeling hungry and have an appetite, but don’t like savory foods or green lettuce.
If salad alone is not enough for you, you can enjoy crispy baguettes with herbs, for example. They also go well with many other salads that you can find here at BILD der FRAU. You’re sure to love our tomato orzo salad with fresh and sun-dried tomatoes or this beetroot risotto salad.
