Vegetarian recipes with couscous that are tasty and healthy
If you like Moroccan cuisine, you don’t need an explanation of how delicious and healthy couscous is. It is usually made from durum wheat semolina, but in some areas it can also be made from millet or barley. In order to be able to prepare delicious, healthy and varied dishes, you first need to cook the couscous separately. The recipes with couscous are not limited to the preparation of vegetarian patties or meatballs without eggs. You can still conjure up salads, soups or baked goods from the nutritious couscous.
The most important thing is to prepare the couscous for processing – it is best to let it swell overnight
Each of us has been skeptical before eating well-cooked vegan food
Couscous can be made from durum wheat, but often it is also made from barley or millet
Couscous balls with turmeric
480ml boiling water,
1 red onion,
5 dried apricots,
20g fresh parsley,
35g chickpea flour,
2 tablespoons olive oil,
1 tablespoon lemon juice,
1 tsp salt,
1-2 tsp turmeric,
2 tsp black cumin,
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon,
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper,
1 pinch nutmeg,
The cooked couscous is given a little oil and left aside to cool completely
Couscous is not only a healthy ingredient, but also a universal ingredient in both savory and sweet dishes
Soak the couscous overnight, swell at a low temperature or bring to the boil briefly (see basic couscous cooking recipe) and then allow to cool. Grind the spices and mix together. Apricots and nuts should be doused with hot water and cut. Mix everything, season to taste and shape into small balls. Bake in a preheated oven at medium heat (180 degrees). Warm or cold, to take away, to grill or simply as a snack – the recipes with couscous are simply fantastic.
Having prepared and mixed everything together, you should check the consistency and only then form meatballs from it
The preparation in the oven is optimal and results in several patties in the same time
Veggi meatballs without egg
1 tablespoon rapeseed oil,
1 large onion,
2 cloves of garlic,
250g cooked or soaked couscous or soaked overnight,
400ml vegetable broth,
2 hands full of fresh salad mix,
400g chickpeas (canned or pre-cooked),
about 50g peas,
approx. 50g braised carrot,
1 tablespoon ground flaxseed
1 tablespoon garam masala
50 g dry bun,
Pinch of salt,
diced red peppers.
Couscous, bulgur or millet can first be washed well, salted and set aside
With fresh salad and wild rice, your creation will taste fresh, healthy and very tasty
Here you should first chop or grate all the vegetables. The spices also come together in one mug. Everything but the lettuce can be mixed together and mashed with your hands. When you have the meatball consistency, you can shape the vegan meatballs into the desired shape. Our recommendation would be to bake the meatballs in the oven, although they are pan-fried. Both are fine, only the oven is a bit healthier than the pan. If you want, you can also fry the meatballs, but that’s where the topic of healthy eating ends for us.
More and more types of vegetables are slowly appearing that can be added to the well-known recipe
You can also serve the patties just like that with a little lemon and parsley
Summer recipe for vegetarian patties with zucchini and mint
200g wholemeal couscous and red lentils mixed,

150g grated Parmesan,
a large zucchini,
1 red onion,
pinch of freshly grated ginger,
1/2 bunch fresh mint,

Cauliflower or celery as a tuber goes well with couscous – you will be amazed at how delicious vegan meatballs without eggs are
These vegetarian patties taste fantastic thanks to the large amount of Parmesan cheese. The recipe is super easy to prepare and you can take the original patties with you on every trip.
Well cooled, the pre-cooked couscous is a great basis (or side dish) for many dishes
Pre-cook the lentils and couscous and grate the cheese into small pieces. Cut the vegetables into small pieces and prepare the spices. The grated zucchini releases a lot of liquid and should be drained before baking. Gently knead everything into a dough with wet hands and leave to rest for a few minutes. If you want a crispy crust, you can dust each patty with a little flour or cornmeal before baking or frying.
If you’re working with zucchini, know that you may need to drain the liquid a few times
All recipes with couscous go well with a salad or as a starter. The crunchy and nutritious couscous balls can be garnished with humus, guacamole and enjoyed with flatbread and salad. You can eat healthy and delicious and think less about your figure!
