    Ainsley does have a value, and I think its approx 2 sins per packet but don't quote me on it! Cous cous is so easy to make, just pour boiling water over it to the half way mark, put a plate on top of it and leave it for 5 mins and its ready to eat. I have mine with roasted free veg in frylight and feta cheese as an A-really nice and easy.

    Try This

    If you are using plain cous-cous but you like the Ainsley Harriott ones try this:

    4oz plain cous-cous
    Juice of 2 lemons
    Handful fresh coriander
    1 clove garlic
    1/2 deseeded chilli (optional)
    1 medium courgette
    1 medium carrot
    1 medium red onion
    Handful chestnut mushrooms
    Frylight

    Finely chop all the vegetables and the herbs (keep seperate)

    Put the cous-cous in a bowl with the lemon juice, cover with boiling water and then cover and set aside

    Spray some frylight into a pan, add the onions, carrots and garlic then cook gently till soft

    Add the chilli (if using), courgette and mushrooms & cook for a few more minuits.

    Stir the veg mix, cous-cous and coriander together & serve.

    Really tasty & free!!
