Cilantro Lentil Pearl Couscous

What you need: 

1 cup dry Israeli pearl couscous
1/2 cup lentils (cooked or from a can)
3 tablespoons vegan margarine
3 tablespoons cilantro cooking base (I use Goya)
sea salt, to taste
handful fresh cilantro

What you do: 

1. Cook the pearl couscous according to the package directions.
2. When it's done, add the rest of the ingredients into the pot.
3. Stir well and let stand for 2 minutes. The heat from the couscous will cook the lentils and cilantro.
This is super simple and super delicious! Enjoy!
Source of recipe: When I lived in France, I probably ate couscous and lentils four nights a week, though never quite like this. This is just something I came up with this from a desire to incorporate the two back into my diet now that I'm back in the states.
