Smoky Couscous, Chard with Tahini

Feeling very sleepy and in need of a bubble bath.  Therefore this blog is going to be short.  Here are a couple pictures of what we cooked tonight.  Whole wheat couscous with cauliflower, smoked paprika, and almonds (Mark Bittman).  I'm too lazy to go get the cookbook to see if that is the actual title of the recipe.  The smokiness of the paprika was awesome, but I think couscous is not my favorite grain.  It's just too small!  But the paprika sure made the dish pretty huh?

To go with that we made our stand-by of chard with tahini.  I LOVE it.  There are many variations of recipes for this.  I think we started with a Mark Bittman version (surprised?).  Basically start by sauteing some garlic in oil, then add a ton of chopped greens and about 1/2 to 3/4 cup of some kind of liquid (water, stock, etc).  Cook it down for about 5-10 minutes, then stir in some tahini so you get this kind of thick sauce.  Put it on the back burner with a lid on until the rest of your dinner is ready, then stir in a little lemon juice, salt and pepper.
