Israeli couscous is one fun little pasta. It’s round and quick-cooking, and has a very pleasant mouth feel. Combined with herbs, raw veggies, and lush stone fruit, this Israeli Couscous Summer Pilaf is a light and refreshing foil to grilled foods or well-seasoned plant-based protein dishes.
Cold soups are one of my favorite ways to feel refreshed in the summer heat. What makes any cold soup even better for me is if it needs no cooking at all, like this one featuring ripe avocados and fresh peas. And it adds gorgeous burst of green to the table, as well.
