Im asking this question on behalf of a friend (I personally dont like couscous!)
She was wodnering if you could use couscous as a flan base? Would this be free or would you have to syn it as you will be using the couscous as a substitute? We found the couscous muffin discussion on her and wondered if it would be the same argument using it as a flan base?
Like me, she is nearing the end of her weight loss so will syn this if need be as it might affect her weight loss.
Many thanks x
I don't know, but can feel a debate coming on..........
lol i feel a debate coming on too, but even i didnt know the answer to this one! x
I personally wouldn't.........
It's synned at 5 syns per 28g uncooked weight.
It says in the book "when ground or used as a flour substitute, it needs to be synned". To me, using cous cous as "pastry" or in a cake is a flour substitute.
Each to their own but I say nope.
i would say yes my self as all you are doing is making the couscous up and putting something on top.
thats just my opinion tho
Thanks for the respoces. I have emailed my friend your replies and said I shall leave it up to her to decide what to do! xx
