Cuscus cu omleta si sos de usturoi / Omelet couscous with garlic dip

Pentru mine prima experienta de a manca cuscus a fost recent. Eram tare curioasa cum se prepara si ce gust are si mai ales cum poate fi folosit in felurile de mancare. Am preparat o reteta mai clasica de cuscus cu legume gratinate si mi-a placut gustul. Este o mancare foarte satioasa si dupa mine, cred ca merge foarte bine servita cu legume, si sosuri. De aceea am incercat azi sa adaptez o reteta de a prepara cuscus dupa o reteta originala iraeliana.

Avem nevoie de:

  • 50 gr cuscus
  • 3 linguri smantana
  • 4 catei usturoi
  • Un ou sau doua
  • Sare si piper
  • Si putin patrunjel

Pregatim oul in putin ulei, il facem omleta. Eu am folosit doar un ou cu fulgul pe el, direct din cuibarul parintilor mei.

Intre timp punem peste cuscus aproximativ 140 ml de apa fierbinte si acoperim bolul. In 5-8 minute se va inmuia si poate fi mancat.

Luam ustuoroiul si il pisam cu o furculita apoi il amestecam cu smantana, patrunjelul, putina sare si piper.

c3

Cand e gata inmuiat cuscusul il amestecam cu oul taiat franjuri. Si asezonam putin cu sare. Apoi servim sosul de smantana cu ustuori langa cuscusul cu omleta. Va spun eu ca o sa va placa. Daca sunteti fan mancare usoara si incercati combinatii mai rar intalnite, sigur veti mai prepara aceast fel de mancare.

Pofta mare!

My first experience of eating couscous is recent. I was curious how to prepare it and of course what is the taste. I was especially intrigued on how it can be used in dishes. I first prepared a classic recipe of couscous with grilled vegetables and I liked the taste. It is a highly nourishing food, and for me, I think it goes very well served with vegetables and sauces. Therefore today I tried to adapt an original Israeli recipe I found. Here is what came out.
We need:

  • 50 gr couscous
  • 3 tablespoons sour cream
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • An egg or two
  • Pepper and salt
  • Some parsley

Make an omelet with the egg or eggs. I used only one egg I have from my parent’s chicks, as you can closely see the feather on it.

Meanwhile over the couscous you pour about 140 ml of hot water and cover the bowl. In 5-8 minutes it will soften and can be eaten. We crush the garlic with a fork and then mix it with the sour cream, parsley, salt and pepper. When the couscous is ready we mix it with the omelet cut in fringe. And then we season with a pinch of salt.

Serve it with the garlic and sour cream sauce and the omelet. I’ll tell you that you will like it. If you are fan of a light meal and you like to try combinations rarely found, I assure you this dish will be served again in your kitchen.

Enjoy!

Salata colorata de primavara / Colourful spring salad

A venit si primavara draga de ea. Vremea de plimbat si cules floricelede prin padure inca se lasa asteptata asa cum ma las si eu asteptata cu o reteta, cu ceva interesant. Draga omule care astepti retete multe si frumoase de la mine, da tu, ala singur din spatele salii, accepta-mi scuzele te rog, dar sa stii ca retetele se mai lasa asteptate. Pune sare, piper, un stop de ulei de masline si niste otet si amesteca bine.

Pana atunci am venit cu o salata. Aceasta este salata mea, colorata, vie, naturala si dementiala.

Spring came, our and dearest. The weather for walking and picking forest flowers is still awaited as I leave myself awaited with a new recipe or with something interesting. Dear man who expect more recipes from me, yes you, the lonely one the back of the room, my only fan, please accept my apologies, but you must know that you’ll have to wait some more.

Until then I come to you with a salad. This is my colorful, vivid, natural and amazingly good spring salad. You my dear reader, will need to buy some vegetables from the market.
Get some:

  • lettuce
  • a cucumber
  • One or two tomatoes
  • A nice big onion

Come home and wash them. Put on the grill a chicken breast and dice it. Cut the veggies, add slat, olive oil and some vinnegar and mix them all. Then think of the joy that your body feels while you are eating this salad.

Enjoy it my dear reader and feel the spring. Until next time, take care and laugh more!
