Couscous and Sweet Potato Skillet

A dish you can easily make in about half an hour or under, this couscous and sweet potato skillet is much more savory than it first seems. That is because it is inspired by Middle Eastern cuisine, where almost every dish tastes like absolute heaven. This skillet's flavor comes from the use of cinnamon, cumin, turmeric, and oregano.

I guess I’ve always had a passion for cooking ever since I was a kid when I was mom’s little helper in the kitchen. Even though I wasn’t actually cooking, I was a picky eater, and I focused on bringing more flavor to her dishes, by adding extra herbs and spices I felt might enrich it. Time has passed, and I haven’t changed that much: I am now my girlfriend’s helper.
