Spinach & Feta Couscous

I love this versatile side dish. We serve it year round. At room temperature or even chilled in the summer and it is fantastic! In the winter I serve it hot, right off the stove and it is likewise wonderful! It goes equally well with chicken or steak. It is so simple, yet elegant and full of flavour. Easy and quick to prepare…I just can’t say enough good things about my Spinach & Feta Couscous. Give it a try. You won’t be disappointed!

Spinach & Feta Couscous

serves 4


  • 7.6 oz. box of whole grain couscous – it doesn’t have to be whole grain – we just prefer it🙂
  • 2 cloves garlic –  minced
  • 1/4 Cup pine nuts
  • 2 Cups baby spinach
  • 1/2 Cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 2 Tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice


Prepare couscous according to package directions and transfer to large bowl.

Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil, garlic and pine nuts over a medium heat, stirring, until golden, 2-3 minutes.

Add spinach to pan and gently stir until just wilted.

Fold spinach mixture into couscous along with feta and lemon juice.

Season with salt and pepper to taste.

  1. Looks yummy. You should try it with bulgur wheat too, so much nicer than couscous.
