Cous Cous, Flaxseed, and Soy... Oh My!

Posted Aug 24 2008 6:44pm 1 Comment
Hodgson Mill offers a wide breadth of healthy products -- from ground flaxseed to whole wheat pastas to whole grain pancake and waffle mixes.

I fully trust that anything they advertise as "whole grain," truly is.

No sneaking in refined flours or tacking on isolated fibers to bulk up values on their food label.

One of my favorite Hodgson Mill offerings is the whole wheat cous cous with soy crisps and milled flaxseed .

It takes less than ten minutes -- and no cooking skills whatsoever, simply boiling water and stirring for 5 seconds -- to get it from the box to your table.

The best part? Each serving provides 6 grams of fiber, 16 grams of protein, 0 milligrams of sodium, and a terrific 450 milligrams of ALA Omega-3 fatty acids in a 230 calorie package.

The ingredient list is beautifully simple. Whole wheat cous cous, soy crisps, and milled flaxseed. That's it.

I love having it as a side dish topped with a sauteed-in-olive-oil mix of garlic, onion, and peppers.

Another tasty idea is to use it as a base for a refreshing summer salad -- simply toss in raisins, chickpeas, diced carrots, red and green pepper strips, and chopped fresh cilantro.

A triumphant trio indeed.
