KATECOOKS: SUMMER COUSCOUS

P1080033: YOU WILL NEED :
.Plain Couscous
.Olive Oil
.1 Cucumber
.Handful of Tomatoes 
.Handful of Basil
.Handful of Parsley
.Salt & Pepper
:HOW TO:

1.Fill a pan with water and bring to the boil,add the Couscous (I used a whole packet because I was feeding a party)If you are cooking for one then just add a cupful,bare in mind it swells once cooked like most pulses/pastas.

2.Boil for 1 minute then turn off your cooker,this will allow the Couscous to soak up the water and it will cook just from the heat of the water alone.Once it has soaked up all of the water,fork some butter through to give it a fluffy texture.

3. Dice your Tomatoes and Cucumber and finely chop your Basil and Parsley.

4.Spoon Couscous in to a large bowl and start adding your veg & herbs.I found it easier to do it layers so you get an even amount of everything in each serving,Add oil as you go to keep it moist.Finish with S+P.

5.Hey Presto,a super quick and easy recipe which is great for summer picnics,bbq’s or parties.If you make too much whack it in the fridge and you can eat it cold for days.Perfect healthy snack.

    Glad to have found an easy couscous recipe! I just have one small question. How much water do you recommended cooking one cup of couscous in? I tend to think that the box cannot be trusted.

      I'd probably use around 250-300ml of water for one person,if it soaks it up too much you can always add more and keep letting it dissolve until its fluffy and soft enough 🙂
