Don’t we just love a quick and easy dish? I know I do. I love it so much that I have
called my cat “couscous” This is the most ridiculously simple side, super volatile that tastes just as good cold for Tabbouleh as it does hot for Tajines. It is wonderfully light and healthy.
500g of instant couscous (couscous are tiny grains made from wheat, it’s essential teeny pasta)
If you are using a different kind of couscous as the whole grain couscous for example, read the how to cook method written on the packaging.
500ml water or stock (stock add flavour)
Cumin and paprika optional
- Bring the water to boil, when it is boiling add the couscous
- Add the butter and stir
- Add a big pinch of salt
- Add cumin, paprika and if you wish
- Turn off the heat.
- Wait 5 /10 minutes
With a fork, fluff and separate it so every grain is detached as much as possible.
Buddy it up with a Tajine
