I tend to get made fun of quite a bit for my love of feta and tomatoes and my attempts to incorporate one or both into anything I can, whenever possible. It's definitely deserved—I always have a tub of Bulgarian feta in my fridge and tend to a go a little crazy in August and September when tomato season is in full effect. This recipe is no exception, but I think it works fantastically. Without realizing, I ended up mixing the ingredients of a diner-style Greek omelet with couscous; luckily, it's a great combination.

The great thing about this recipe is that it's inexpensive and, if you're making it for just one or two people, the leftovers can be made into multiple meals with a just a few new additions. You can try adding roasted asparagus to the mix or even throwing it over a bed greens with a drizzle of olive oil and lemon juice. If you're in the mood for protein, quickly cook some chicken breasts, thighs, or legs and serve with couscous as a side dish. You could even season the chicken with lemon, garlic, and oregano to give it the full Greek treatment.
