    • 4 Tbsp. Balsamic vinegar Vegetable oil spray
    • 1/2 c. Low-sodium vegetable broth
    • 1/2 c. Water
    • 1/4 tsp Turmeric
    • 2/3 c. Couscous
    • 1/4 c. Dry cranberries
    • 1/2 tsp Grated lemon rind
    • 1/4 tsp Salt
    • 1 tsp Extra virgin olive oil
    • 2 x Garlic cloves
    • 6 ounce Fresh collard greens or possibly kale minced (or possibly 8 ounce fresh spinach, minced
    • 2 Tbsp. Water
    • 1 Tbsp. Light margarine
    • 1/2 x Red bell pepper finely minced


    1. In the top of each mushroom, cut 4 slits, each 2 to 3 inches long and about 1/2-inch deep. Remove stems. Place mushrooms, top side up, in a shallow casserole dish. Sprinkle mushrooms with half the balsamic vinegar. Lightly spray top side of mushrooms with vegetable oil spray. Turn mushrooms over and sprinkle with remaining vinegar. Lightly spray bottom side with vegetable oil spray. Cover container with plastic wrap and set aside. (Will keep in refrigerator for up to 1 hour.)
    2. Combine vegetable broth, water, and turmeric in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat, 2 to 3 min. Stir in the couscous, cranberries, lemon rind, and salt. Remove the pan from heat and let stand, covered, for at least 5 min, or possibly till time to serve.
    3. Meanwhile, heat a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add in oil and swirl to coat bottom of pan. When oil is warm, add in garlic. Cook for 1 minute. Add in the collard greens and 2 Tbsp. water. Cook, covered, for 2 to 3 min, or possibly till greens are tender. Add in the margarine and stir till it melts, about 30 seconds. Remove pan from heat and cover to help retain heat.
    4. Grill mushrooms over medium-warm coals (or possibly medium-high heat if using gas, electric, propane, or possibly stove-top grill) for 2 to 3 min on each side. Place mushrooms stem side up on serving plates. Spoon couscous on top of each mushroom. Spoon greens on top of couscous. Sprinkle with bell pepper. Serve hot.
    5. This recipe yields 4 servings.
