This falls into the category of "use up bits and pieces" dinner. I served this with bread and tapenade (both storebought) and veggie sandwiches (leftover from a work lunch that I wasn't invited to, but I got the leftovers).

Couscous with veggies
1 T canola oil: 0.04
1 onion, diced: 0.33
1.5 cup couscous: 1.03
1.5 cup water
3 small kohlrabi, peeled and diced: 1.00
1 small head broccoli, chopped: 1.00
3 pieces green garlic, chopped: 0.30
juice and zest of 1 lemon: free
salt and pepper
Total: $3.70 for about 8 servings. $0.46 per serving

topped with parmesan and avocado. Yum!

Boil water, pour over couscous, cover and let sit. I left it covered in the fridge all day.

Saute onion until soft. Add kohlrabi and cook until onions and kohlrabi are brown. Add green garlic and broccoli and 1/4 cup water, cover and steam 4 min.

Add cooked couscous, salt, pepper, and lemon juice and zest. Stir to warm through.
