How to make it

  • Mix 1 tbsp butter with leftover Couscous
  • (note: the leftover couscous used was originally cooked in vegetable broth with white wine and lemon juice with chives).
  • Dump the couscous into an 8" pie plate. Press it down and up the sides of the dish.
  • Saute the onion and garlic in a little olive oil (note: if you are substituting regular garlic, DO NOT use 25 cloves. Wild Garlic is much milder. I would suggest maybe 2 cloves, and I would mince them).
  • Spoon onions and garlic into the couscous crust.
  • Mix together the milk, eggs, Dijon, 1/4 of the Parmesan, and salt and pepper. Pour over the pie.
  • Top with tomato slices, then remaining Parmesan, Mozzarella and cilantro. Bake at 350F for about 45 minutes, or until set and the edges have started to brown.
  • Serve small wedges as a side dish, or with a salad for lunch or brunch.

    Thank you for this recipe. We tried it tonight (added some turkey bacon and bell peppers to it, but left everything else unchanged) and we absolutely loved it! I made it as a "creative" way to use leftover couscous, but my husband said: "Can we make this NOT as leftovers, but just as ... regular food?" Very easy to make and absolutely delicious. Thank YOU, for sharing !!!

    Hey my name is Chef Jay Z and I just recently joined and loved this concept of an idea. I am a chef consultant for a company and I made this same recipe using Isreali Cous Cous (the more pearl pasta shape) it rocked!! Very crazy our ideas were so similar!!!! Keep up the creative juices!!
