Instant Cous Cous with Chicken & Vegetables
Health Highlights


1 dash Black pepper
1 tsp Chia seeds, ground (or ground flax seed)
1/3 cup Chicken, freeze dried, chopped
1/3 cup Couscous, whole wheat, dry
1/4 tsp Garlic powder
1 tbsp Onion, freeze dried, chopped
1/4 tsp Parsley, dried
1/4 tsp Sage, ground
1/4 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp, ground Thyme, dried
1 1/2 tsp Vegetable bouillon
1/2 cup Vegetables, freeze-dried
1 1/2 cup Water


To assemble, add all ingredients except the water to a quart freezer Ziploc bag. Seal bag and store until ready to use.

Bring water to a boil. With opened bag resting on plate or bowl, pour in boiling water. Seal bag and let soak for 9 minutes, turning bag upside down after 3-4 minutes to redistribute and mix ingredients. Open bag and eat directly from bag, if desired. Or, transfer to a bowl or mug for eating.

To cook in a mug or bowl, transfer dry ingredients to a microwave-safe mug or bowl; add water and microwave until water boils. Cover and let rest until ingredients have softened (4-5 minutes). Or, boil the water separately and pour it into the mug or bowl with the instant dry ingredients; stir, cover, and let rest for 9 or 10 minutes.
