  • 1 c. couscous

  • 3 tbsp. olive oil

  • 1 medium red onion

  • 2 clove garlic

  • 1 tsp. fresh thyme leaves

  • 1 1/2 tsp. ground cumin

  • Kosher salt

  • pepper

  • 2 medium carrots

  • 1 can vegetarian refried beans

  • 4 English muffins

  • Lettuce

  • Sliced avocado

  • Red onion

  • Tomato



Place the couscous in a medium bowl. Add 1 1/4 cups hot tap water, cover and let sit for 15 minutes; fluff with a fork.

Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add all but 1/4 cup of the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, 4 to 5 minutes. Stir in the garlic and thyme, sprinkle with 1 teaspoon cumin and 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper and cook, stirring, for 1 minute.

Add half the carrots (about 1 cup) and cook, stirring occasionally, for 2 minutes more; remove from heat and transfer to a large bowl. Fold in the refried beans, then 1/2 cup of the prepared couscous.

With wet hands, form the mixture into four 3/4-inch-thick patties. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cook the patties until browned and heated through, about 3 minutes per side.

Fold the remaining carrots, onion, tablespoon oil, and 1/2 teaspoon cumin into the couscous along with 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Serve the burgers on English muffins and top with lettuce, avocado, onions, and tomato, if desired. Serve with the couscous.
