Couscous with moroccan inspired seasoning. Just add boiling water add cook for 2 minutes in the microwave.
I recently bought some of this Cous cous mix at the supermarket. I thought it might work out well as a side for dinner one night. I had never made cous cous before and was a little apprehensive about it. One day for lunch, while my husband was away I decided to bit the bullet and make up the packet.
The directions on this packet made it so easy. I just had to prepare a bowl of water, butter or margarine and then the cous cous mix. I stirred the mixture and then microwaved it for 2 minutes. Once it was cooked, I just had to leave it a little bit and then fluff with a fork. This was so easy to make and for such a small amount of effort, I got something amazing!
I put together a bowl for my youngest and myself. My eldest didn't want to try it, as she is a real sandwich girl. My youngest wasn't too sure about it. She played with it a bit and once some went into her mouth she enjoyed it. However, I think the texture made it harder for her to pick up. She is doing baby led weaning, so mostly finger style foods.
I personally loved this. I am a big fan of cous cous anyway. But the fact I could make this at home by myself was great and the flavour was delicious. You could get this to make a cold salad for summer BBQs or picnics. You could have this as a side with meat and vegetables. It is very versatile and I will definitely be buying it again.
We have couscous quite often in our house especially during the summer I find couscous salads to be a lot lighter than rice or pasta. I normally make it from scratch using my own flavourings and ingredients but I tried one of these packet mixes recently and really loved the flavour.
This has a nice savoury flavour too it with a hint of spice and it has little currants through it which I found to be really good addition. They added a nice level of sweetness to it, and I wish there were more in the packet as there were only a few. It is certainly packed full of flavour and makes a nice side dish with meat and salad or could even be eaten on it's own. I think it would be great at a summer barbeque.
The one thing I love about couscous is how easy it is to cook and this is no exception. All you need to do is add a cup of boiling water and a teaspoon of butter and cook in the microwave for two minutes. When it has finished cooking all you need to do is fluff it with a fork and leave it to stand before serving so it is definitely something you could make quickly and with little fuss when you had time restraints.
