cooking with mickey

i’ve posted before that the moroccan pavilion restaurants at epcot center meets the LFS*. so thanks to eric of, i recieved the recipe for the delicious couscous served in the restaurants and i think perhaps at the previous incarnation of tusker house at the animal kingdom. the recipe is as follows:

Couscous salad

Restaurant Marrakesh



yield 4 servings


1/2 red onion

1 tsp. chopped garlic

1/2 each green and red bell pepper

1/2 chopped zucchini

1/2 cup olive oil

1/4 cup raisins

1/4 cup garbonzo beans

1 cup orange juice

12 oz. cooked plain couscous

2 tbs. chopped fresh parsley

1/2 cup tangerine segments

salt, pepper, nutmeg and cinnamon to taste

in large non-stick skillet, saute onion, garlic, peppers and zucchini in olive oil. season with salt, pepper, cinnamon and nutmeg.

add parsley and fold in citrus segments.

serve and enjoy! now i doubled the recipe, didn’t have any green peppers, used the amount of oil for one batch to make two and had to guesstimate the spices – but it was a success, something i will definitely make again.

    I do have an idea for you though you should blog or do a “Cats” segment on what meets the LFS* and why.

    it was so yummy, i ate it all in like a week of non-stop coucous-a-go-go! now i’ll need to remake it and see if corn does go with everything (but my people call it maize).
