My recipe for Apple Sausage Couscous evokes the coolness of fall, the crispness of walking in leaves, and the yummyness of apple pie. Except, its supposed to be 90 degrees today and I am so over summer I could spit nails. I stumbled across a sale on couscous at the store this weekend and decided it would be good for lunch, but I couldn’t decide what to fix with it. Fall is my favorite season and I am ready for football… and what screams fall more than apples?
This quick and delicious recipe uses a box of couscous, a package of turkey kielbasa, all-natural applesauce, brown sugar, and garlic. It wraps it up nice and neat in an apple sweetness package that pairs perfectly with the couscous! Enjoy!
