Israeli couscous with kabanos - Easy, fast and delicious!

When I ask people what their guilty pleasure dish is, I often get the answer 'Israeli couscous and fried sausages'.

A dish that has become a kind of childhood classic, something that for many of us is etched to good memories.

The most simple dish of Israeli couscous with fried sausages and onions and sometimes also tomato sauce.

I decided to upgrade the dish a bit with deeper flavors. And I also added a pleasant spiciness to it.

I do not have much more to say, except that it came out really yummy, comforting and with a nostalgic smell 😊


  • A cup and a half of Israeli couscous

  • 1 medium onion

  • 2 kabanos sausages

  • 1 small carrot

  • 2 stalks of celery

  • 3-4 tablespoons tomato paste

  • Half a teaspoon of sweet / spicy paprika

  • Half a teaspoon of dry chili flakes (optional)

  • Olive oil / canola oil

  • Salt

  • Ground black pepper

  • Hot water


  • Prepare all the ingredients - cut the onion into small cubes, grate the carrot, cut the cabanas into thin slices and also the celery stalks (without the leaves).

  • Heat two tablespoons of oil in a saucepan, add half a teaspoon of paprika, half a teaspoon of chilli flakes, a pinch of salt and a pinch of black pepper.

  • Mix the spices with the oil and fry the onion.

  • When the onion starts to turn golden, add the slices of kabanos and celery and fry together with the onion.

  • Then add the grated carrot and mix.

  • Add the Israeli couscous and lightly fry.

  • Pour into the pot 2 and a half cups of boiling water, add tomato paste and another teaspoon of salt and mix.

  • Close the pot and cook for 6-7 minutes. Stir occasionally.

  • Towards the end of cooking, taste, if necessary - add a little more salt.

Enjoy! :)
