    Hi People...

    So...over the weekend, I discovered couscous for the first time... just wondering if anyone has any yummy suggestions as to what to do with it? I had it with onions in it, but looking for something bit more exciting??! lol :confused:

    you could make a tabbouleh with it - chop spring onions, tomatoes, cucumber, sprinkle with 2 tsp olive oil, some lemon juice and parsley and mix together.. its nice as a side dish.

    I usually use cous cous as a lighter alternative to rice - its nice alongside curries, chillis etc x

    I like the Ainsley Harriott cous cous, my favourite is the citrus kick. It's only 1 point per serving (half a pack). I've tried the plain couscous adding flavouring but it always seems to come out tasting a bit bland!

    Morrisons do a morrocan spice in a packet and I use fry light, then fry off chopped onion, peppers, courgettes, spring onion, in fact anything thats lying about, then add a good tablespoon of spice, fry all off then add couscous and fry that for a minute or two then add chicken stock. I swear, it's AMAZING!!
    It's not 'spicy' but has spices in it if you know what I mean. It isn't chilli spice hot, but you have caraway, coriander, paprika etc. I also add a tablespoon of raisins or sultanas in for a little bit of sweetness
