Gonna post the recipe for the dinner I made tonight. Quick, easy and yummy. I couldn't take the idea of anything heavy or greasy or really rich or anything--I am still recovering my balance from the holidays. I found an unopened package of Ziyad couscous (maftoul) that we'd had for a long time and not used yet. So I made couscous with vegetables as follows:

1 cup couscous
1/2 stalk celery, chopped
~1/3 cup chopped onion (about 1/2 of a small onion, maybe 1/6 of a big sweet onion)
1 tbsp olive oil
1 1/2 cups chicken broth (for vegetarian version use vegetable broth or stock)
1/2 tsp curry powder
1/4 tsp cumin
1/8 tsp garam masala
1 pinch salt
black pepper
~2 cups frozen vegetables, thawed a bit in the microwave--I used corn, peas, edamame, yellow squash and spinach

In a big skillet with a lid, heat oil over medium heat. Saute onion and celery for ~2 minutes. Add couscous and cook it until it gets some gold/brown color to it. Meanwhile, in small pot or microwave, bring broth to a boil. Add heated broth to the couscous, plus spices and vegetables. Bring to a boil (the veggies will cool it down a bit), reduce heat to simmer, cover and let simmer for 15 minutes. Remove from heat, stir and serve.
