Mediterranean vegetable stir fry

This is another family favorite that I throw together when we’ve got very little time and want something delicious. I can’t tell you proportions, because it turns out different every time, based upon how much of each ingredient we happen to have around. You can easily substitute ingredients that better suit your family. You don’t really need to add anything to this vegetarian entree, but a green salad with Greek dressing is nice!

Mediterranean Vegetables


Olive oil
Onion, chopped
Red & green peppers, chopped
Green beans, whole or cut

Artichoke hearts
Black olives (Greek kalamata preferred)
Canned diced tomatoes
Oregano, basil, black pepper

Feta cheese
Parmesan cheese
Pine nuts

Prepare the couscous or other pasta (or rice) while cooking the vegetables as follows: stir fry onions, peppers, and beans in olive oil. Add artichokes through spices and heat for about 3 minutes. Stir in cheeses and serve over couscous, topped with pine nuts.
