Broccoli couscous with za’atar pork tenderloin

A delicious dinner dish: broccoli couscous with pork tenderloin marinated in za'atar herbs. Healthy and very tasty too! | Stay Alive and Cooking

This dish is something completely different! Raw broccoli is combined with couscous, lime zest and pecans to create a delicious dinner dish. Pork tenderloin is seasoned in za’atar and baked in the oven, and matches the couscous really well!

When can you call yourself a foodie? Am I a foodie: I definitely think so….

I got this idea from a girl named Nina, who kindly asked me for an interview! How cool is that, that sounds almost like I’m a celebrity. No, it wasn’t like that: she is writing her master thesis about foodies and needed to interview some actual foodies about their point of view.

I actually planned to write about the foodie culture, but I already wrote so much about the interview and being a foodie that I’ll leave that for next time.
