Happy National Vegetarian Day!!

Today is National Vegetarian Day! Although I love meat, and couldn't give it up, I also love myself some vegetarian dishes as well. Here's one of my favorites that you can make and enjoy yourself:

1/2 cup diced yellow bell pepper
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1 jalapeno, seed and diced
2 Tbsp olive oil
3-4 Tbsp lime juice
1/2 cups diced red bell pepper
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cumin
1 cup uncooked couscous
1-15oz can black beans, rinsed
1 cup corn
1/2 cup diced red onion

In a medium saucepan combine salt, cumin and 1.5 cups of water. Boil, add couscous, stir and return to boil. Reduce to low and simmer for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and fluff with fork. Let stand 5 minutes, fluff again. Combine all ingredients and serve!!
