|1/4 cup / 50 ml||whole-wheat or regular couscous|
|1/2 cup / 125 ml||boiling water|
|1/2 cup / 125 g||Egg Creations Fat Free Cheese & Chive, well shaken|
|1/4 cup / 50 ml||each seeded and diced green pepper and tomato|
|2 tbsp / 30 ml||finely chopped ham|
|2 tbsp / 30 ml||finely chopped green onion|
|pinch||each salt and pepper (approx.)|
|shredded cheddar cheese (optional)|
|sour cream (optional)|
Place the couscous in a small, heatproof bowl. Pour the boiling water over top; cover and let stand for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork.
Meanwhile, stir the eggs with the green pepper, tomato, ham, green onion, salt and pepper in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on High, stirring once, for 2 to 3 minutes or just until set. Stir to break into curds.
Toss the scrambled eggs with the couscous. Adjust seasonings to taste. Sprinkle with cheese (if using). Serve immediately with a dollop of sour cream (if using).
Substitute 2 cups (500 mL) of another cooked whole grain such as quinoa, amaranth or bulgur for the couscous.
Chop the veggies and ham in advance and reserve, tightly covered, in the refrigerator to shortcut the morning prep-work.
