I tried a few new recipes lately and I have to say that I fell in love with these two. These Butternut Squash & Couscous patties were sooo flavorful and paired with the Broccoli Salad made the perfect warm weather meal.
BUTTERNUT SQUASH & COUSCOUS PATTIES
Peeled & cubed butternut squash- 1lb
Couscous- 3/4 cup cooked
Fresh Ginger minced- 1tbsp
Ground Cumin- 1 tsp
Masala seasoning- 1 tbsp
Fresh Cilantro- 1/2 cup chopped
Salt & Pepper to taste
- Boil the cubed Butternut Squash in some water for about 10-15 until all cooked. Mash it and keep aside
-Bring a cup of water to a boil and add the couscous. Mix well, cover with a lid and switch off the heat. Let it sit for about two minutes. Fluff it with a fork.
-Mix cooked couscous into the squash along with the ginger, all the spices and cilantro.
-Take a small portion in your hands and make a ball then gently flatten to form disks.
-Heat about 2 tbsp of oil in a non stick pan and swirl the oil all over. Place the patties in a single layer.
-Keep the heat on medium and let it develop a golden color on one side before flipping and repeat the process for the other side too.
Apple Cider Vinegar- 3 tbsp

Dijon Mustard- 2 tbsp
Honey- 1 tbsp
Pepper- 1/2 tsp
dash of salt
2 small heads of broccoli- coarsely chopped

-Whisk together apple cider vinegar through salt. Then add chopped apples, broccoli and onions.
Mix together and chill in the fridge until ready to serve.
