I’ve been hooked on Catalan Couscous Salad since I first found it in Appetite for Reduction: Fast and Filling Low-Fat Vegan Meals. This awesome cookbook features lots of healthy, low-fat, low-cal vegan recipes. I love it because unlike other vegan cookbooks, the recipes feel natural– not full of vegan cheese, vegan mayo, vegan milk, etc. The cookbook is written by Isa Chandra Moskowitz who also has a vegan blog called Post Punk Kitchen. The combination of chewy spinach and fluffy couscous makes it a bit of a messy salad (you might have to vacuum after!) but the delicious homemade romesco sauce pairs perfectly with sliced pears and truly does evoke the flavours of Barcelona (I should know- I lived there!).
For the complete salad recipe, including the Romesco sauce, you can look on Google Books here. Scroll slowly!
