Ingredients

  • 12 ounces frozen Asian stir fry vegetable mix (broccoli, baby corn, mushroom, carrots, green beans)
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil divided
  • 1/2 cup red onion diced
  • 1 cup frozen corn kernels
  • 1 cup Kettle & Fire Chicken Bone Broth
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 teaspoons Chipotle Adobo sauce
  • 3/4 cup plain couscous
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Microwave vegetables on high for 5 minutes. Then chop into small pieces. Place on baking tray; coat with 1 tablespoon oil. Bake 10-12 minutes, stirring once halfway through, or until lightly browned.

  2. Preheat a medium saucepan on medium-high 1–2 minutes. Place remaining 1 tablespoon oil in the pan, then add onions and corn; cook and stir 2-3 minutes or until onions are softened. Add chicken bone broth, season with 1/2 teaspoon sea salt and pepper, add Chipotle Adobo sauce; bring to a boil.

  3. Remove pan from heat; stir in couscous, cover, and let stand 5 minutes. Meanwhile, zest/grate lemon peel and squeeze lemon for juice (2 tablespoons).

  4. Fluff couscous with a fork; fold in (stir gently) roasted vegetables, zest, and juice. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

Notes: This recipe can also be made with quinoa for a gluten-free version. To cook quinoa, at step 2, add 1/2 uncooked quinoa into the saucepan with the onions and corn kernels, followed by 1 cup chicken bone broth. Bring it to a boil and reduce heat to low. Simmer for 15 minutes or until the quinoa is tender.
