GUYS. I’m totally obsessed with sun-dried tomatoes. I can’t. get. enough. I’ve even started planning which tomatoes I need to plant in my garden this summer that will be best for making my own sun-dried tomatoes. Let’s be honest the only thing not fantastic about them is their price, and it looks like making my own won’t be as difficult as I thought! I’ll keep you updated with that process 😉 For now I’ll keep buying them in the store because everything I add them to turns out to be my new favorite recipe!  and can we just take a minute to love on these photos. Every once in a while I style and photograph something that just makes me giddy with the end results- this was one of those. ok, ok on to the recipe for this awesome veggie cous-cous salad!

I think this recipe would be just as good with any other grain like farro or quinoa, which adds some more protein to the dish, however in my house I live with a quinoa hater so I made it with cous-cous. Every once in a while I try not to ignore his distaste for quinoa, but I love it!

When you are cooking your veggies you’ll add less olive oil than you normally would because the sun-dried tomatoes add a lot of oil to the pan, the same reason you really don’t need a “dressing” with this salad. When you toss all the ingredients it comes together quite nicely.

This dish is a perfect vegetarian dinner for two, side salad or lunch. The flavor is really really good thanks to the goat cheese mix and all those lovely sun-dried tomatoes. What do you make with sun-dried tomatoes? Please tell me so I can make more recipes with my new favorite ingredient. 🙂
