Dinner Tonight: Merguez Sausage with Fennel and Couscous
There is something really satisfying about the one-pot meal. This happens to be true whether it's the depth of winter or the height of summer. One-pot meals don't have to be long simmering stews, or something that sticks to your ribs. This sausage and couscous recipe from Padma Lakshmi goes the Moroccan route, and it's perfect for this time of year.
Though this recipe contains sausage and chicken stock, it's balanced by sweet cranberries, fragrant fennel, and spicy harissa paste. The couscous comes out tender and fluffy with the absolute minimum amount of effort. It tastes great straight from the pot, and also surprisingly good at room temperature.
