  • 1/2 cup couscous
  • 1/2 package Trader Joe’s Seasoned Kale Chips
  • 1/4 cup raisins 
  • 2 tbsp pine nuts
  • 1/4 tsp garlic
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp olive oil



Thoroughly combine the first six ingredients together in a quart-sized Ziploc Freezer Bag. Store the olive oil separately in a reusable container or disposable water bottle.


Heat 1-1/2 cups of water to a boil. After the water has cooled slightly, pour 1 cup of the water into the Ziploc Freezer Bag and seal, leaving a small opening for hot air to escape. Once the water has been absorbed, taste for consistency, adding more water as needed. As a final step, add the olive oil and mix thoroughly to incorporate.
