This is a family favorite that is usually saved for a cold day.
1 bag of frozen mixed veggies. (I like the one with the pumpkin, celery,squash,onions, cabbage,carrots etc.)
5 cups water
Juice from one lemon
1\4 cup oil
Salt, pepper to taste
4 T. Chicken soup powder (or Veg. soup powder)
1\2 t. turmeric
Note: I like to add a can of chickpeas
1. Heat oil in soup pot and lightly fry vegetables.
2. Add water and lemon juice and bring it all to a rolling boil.
3. Add your spices and cook on medium heat for about 20 minutes.
While the soup is simmering, make your couscous following the directions on the package.
I found a special couscous steamer on sale and grabbed it.
So I make mine over the simmering soup.
When the soup is done then just put some couscous in the bottom of your bowl and pile on the veggies and soup.
