Another healthy one and a very easy recipe to keep track with the diet and healthy eating. I have never cooked Cous-cous before so I thought I’d give it a try. Cous-Cous is a semolina-based carbohydrate which, according to the Wikipedia page is a healthy alternative to rice and pasta.

It’s a handy item to keep in your cupboard because in its dry, packaged form its shape and weight make it an ideal aid to holding a cookery book open, freeing your hands up for rolling pastry or opening a bottle of wine….

It was lovely and versatile and now we have incorporated this dish into to our regular meals. For example last night we did it differently with tuna, lettuce, tomato and avocado… yum yum!


  • Cous-cous
  • vegetables to grill or roast
  • olive oil
  • salt pepper


In a frying pan with a tsbp of olive oil add the chopped vegetables and stir fry them until tender. I used onions, red and orange peppers and courgette. Follow the instruction on the cous-cous packet: generally add 250ml of boiling water to around 250g of cous-cous, stir, leave it for 5 minutes and it’s ready to eat!

Mix the vegetables with the cous-cous, season and add some feta chesse… delicious! An alternative to your usual carbs and it looks nice… Enjoy
