Comforting flavorful braised pork ragout with delicious couscous, our family dinner favorite and absolutely toddlers approved!

These dish falls into healthy category in my mind because first- couscous is naturally sugar free and fat free, great protein source and also rich in fiber.

Easy to cook too! Just boil some water, then add couscous, turn the heat off and let it sit,covered. Then fluff with fork and its good to go!

The more veggies you add to the ragout, the better. Actually , I can call it an “everything in a fridge”veggies ragout… add bell peppers if you like, or ever corn or green peas!

I didn’t put any spices in this dish (except salt and pepper), because that’s just the way I like it. Feel free to add some oregano or rosemary.
