5 servings (serving size: about 1 1/3 cups couscous salad and 1 tablespoon cheese)

Choose this lime-basil-infused salad—with chunks of beta-carotene-laced sweet potatoes and tender, high-fiber, protein-rich black soybeans—for a healthy meatless main dish you can have on the table in 15 minutes.

Prep: 5 minutes; Cook: 5 minutes; Other: 5 minutes

How to Make It

Step 1

Bring 3/4 cup water to boil in a medium saucepan; gradually stir in couscous. Remove from heat; cover and let stand 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork.

Step 2

While couscous stands, place sweet potato on a microwave-safe plate. Microwave at HIGH 5 minutes or until tender.

Step 3

Combine vinaigrette, pepper, and salt in a large bowl; stir well with a whisk. Add couscous, sweet potato, soybeans, and spinach; toss gently to coat. Top each serving with cheese; sprinkle evenly with onions.

This is delicious! I used black beans because I could not find black soybeans, I made my own basil lime vinaigrette and I roasted my sweet potatoes with a little olive oil and salt and pepper! We will definitely make this a regular recipe at our house!
