Servings 4 servings


  • 1/2 cup couscous
  • 1/2 cup vegetable broth
  • 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 bunch beet greens
  • 1 Tbsp chopped fresh mint leaves dill or parsley leaves, or a combination
  • 1 pound cooked and peeled beets cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1/4 tsp fine sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 3 tsp fresh lemon juice plus more to taste
  • 1/2 cup Greek Yogurt
  • 1 pound clove garlic chopped

  • Combine the couscous, broth & 1/2 tsp of the oil in a medium bowl. Cover and let sit for at least 45 minutes at room temperature, or refrigerate overnight. When ready to serve, fluff the couscous with a fork.

Toss them with 1 ½ tsp of the herbs, the remaining oil, 1/8 tsp of the salt, 1/8 tsp of the pepper and the lemon juice. Taste, and add more lemon juice if needed.
  • Whisk together the yogurt, garlic and the remaining salt and 1/8 teaspoon of pepper in a medium bowl.
  • Toss the beets with the remaining tablespoon of chopped herbs.
  • Divide the couscous among individual bowls or plates. Top each portion with, in the following order, the greens, the beets, dollops of the yogurt mixture and a sprinkling of walnuts. Serve right away.
