1 large scallion
5 large white mushrooms (or more if you like!)
1 1/4 - 1 1/2 cups veggie stock
2 tablespoons pine nuts
1-2 handfuls spinach
salt to taste
1.) In a medium saucepan, toast the couscous for a few minutes in 1 tablespoon of olive oil. While couscous is toasting, roughly chop the scallion and mushrooms.
2.) When couscous is toasted, add chopped mushrooms, scallion, and vegetable stock to couscous. Bring to a boil. Cover and cook on low heat for about 10 minutes.
3.) While couscous is cooking, add spinach and 1 tablespoon of pine nuts to a food processor or blender. Begin processing and add enough olive oil to make a thick sauce.
