Most days at work, I disappoint my friend Matt. He’s a frequent buyer of food at lunch time, and asks me on occasion if I’d like to jump on an order. More times than not, I let him down, and decline, falling back on leftovers I brought from home. Still, the way I figure it, it’ll only be a matter of time before he stops asking. And today’s lunch, grilled chicken with broccoli and tofu, was in dire need for some sprucing up. Matt sent me a menu to Swich Pressed Sandwiches, which serves, of course, sangwiches. Not the ideal side dish option. But, I did see that they have a “big little couscous” for a reasonable $2.50 price tag that piqued my interest. And I have to say, I did not regret it.
Only being accustomed to boxed, supermarket couscous, I had no idea it could come this big! It had a light oil dressing, fresh herbs, and generous helpings of cranberries laced throughout. Each spoonful had a delightful sweet, and savory taste, which boosted the otherwise one-dimensional lunch I had started with. Dishes like that make me feel like I’m making a healthy choice for my midday break, and it did not sacrifice in flavor at all. If Swich’s sides are this good, I’ll definitely be taking Matt up on the next sandwich run.
