    Recipe Introduction

    6 Servings; 4 Points per serving

    List of Ingredients

    1-1/2 cups vegetable stock or chicken stock
    1 cup couscous
    1/2 cup minced red bell pepper
    1/3 cup minced green onion
    1/3 cup minced red onion
    1/4 cup minced black olive
    1 tsp minced garlic
    1 tsp dried oregano
    1-1/2 oz light feta cheese, crumbled
    2 large egg whites
    1 large egg
    2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice


    Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
    Spray baking sheet with vegetable spray.

    In a saucepan over high heat, bring stock to a boil.
    Add couscous; remove from heat. Let stand, covered, for
    5 minutes or until liquid is absorbed and grain is tender.
    Fluff with a fork; set aside to cool.

    In a bowl combine cooled couscous, red peppers, green onions,
    red onions, black olives, garlic, oregano, feta cheese, egg
    whites, whole egg and lemon juice. Form each 1/3 cup mixture
    into a flat patty, squeezing together in your hands. Place
    patties on prepared baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven,
    turning at halfway point, for 20 minutes or until golden.

    Sauce: In a bowl combine sour cream, dill, lemon juice
    and garlic. Serve warm patties with sauce.
