Strutting her stuff
Hi! Plain cous cous is syn free on green and EE. The packets of flavoured cous cous usually have a small syn value. If you do a search on Ainsley Harriott you should find the information as this comes up quite a lot. Oh, and for future reference if you have any questions about syn values can you post them in the syn values sub-forum at the top of the main page :)

Morrisons sell their own brand Cous Cous, it is dry and should be free on green days, depending how it's cooked. I normally dissolve a vegetable stock cube in some boiling water and pour it over then cover with clingfilm and leave to absorb before fluffing up with a fork. It's very versatile (can be used for stuffed peppers, aubergine etc) The flavoured ones do have syns x

Plain cous cous is free. It is also cheaper - much cheaper - than flavoured varieties.

Sainsbury's own brand cous cous is £1.22 per kilo; they sell Ainsley Harriott packets which work out at £5.90 per kilo!
