Light and fluffy organic wholemeal couscous takes just minutes to prepare. It’s a wonderful alternative to rice or pasta for absorbing the succulent juices of stews, sauces and tagines. Or use in a healthy salad, or as a base for stuffing butternut squash or a braised shoulder of lamb.
The easiest way of cooking is to fry 1 cup of couscous in a little oil for 3 minutes, then cover with 2 cups of boiling water or stock. Leave for 5 minutes then fluff with a fork and season. Simpler still, add couscous to a dinner dish for the last minutes of cooking, as with this Moroccan chicken and couscous broth.
