1 Cup Wheat Cous Cous

2 Cups Vegatable Broth

Pink Himalayan Salt or Kosher salt to taste

1 tablespoon Vegan Butter

1/2 cup half and half

3/4 teaspoon Garam Masala

This Mystic Cous Cous goes well with my garlicky salmon recipe and any vegetable side.

Bring 2 cups of vegetable broth to a boil.

Add the wheat cous cous and stir.

Reduce heat to medium low.

Add Vegan Butter and stir until melted.

Add Half n Half

Add Garam Masala and stir.

Then add as much Himalayan Salt as your taste buds desire. Remember though, the less salt in your diet the better but make sure it is tasty. Himalayan salt has a wonderful cleansing healing property. Kosher salt may be substituted.

Turn heat off and place lid on the pot until you are ready to serve.
