Couscous Cakes

We always have leftover couscous from dinner. I make these tasty little treats the day after to use it up!



6 servings
  1. 2 cup Cooked Couscous (I always use Roasted Garlic flavored)
  2. 2 Eggs, beaten lightly
  3. 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
  4. 1 tbsp Fresh basil, chopped
  5. 2 tbsp Flour
  6. 1/4 cup Olive Oil

    Brown on both sides until golden, about 3 minutes per side.
