Dara's Mergueza With Couscous
"I purchased your Mergueza sausage...It was DELICIOUS! We made some couscous and chickpeas and whipped up a cooling yogurt sauce on the side. YUM!!!"
Sounds wonderful Dara, tell us how you prepared everything.
"We rinsed one can of chickpeas under cold running water until all canning residue was removed. We simmered them in a bit of chicken stock on low heat. We cooked the mergueza in chunks in a hot pan and then tossed the chickpeas in with the lamb. Would be good to toss in a Spanish onion, too and caramelize it.
1 Cup strained Greek yogurt (we use 2% Fage)
2 Tbsp minced mint leaves
Hothouse cucumber, diced
Juice of one half lemon
On the side we prepared a 5-minute couscous with pine nuts and added in our own golden raisins then tossed in a handful of chopped cilantro."
