crunchy couscous

crunchy couscous

really easy - the only cooking is bunging some hot water on the couscous, though sprouting the moong beans took a couple of days.

  1. small cup of couscous
  2. 1/2 tsp veg stock powder (optional)
  3. about 1/8th red cabbage (or whatever you have lurking in fridge)
  4. olive oil
  5. 1/2 lemon
  6. 1/2 red chilli (or that ready-squished stuff)
  7. 1/2 cm ginger (ditto)
  8. 2 spring onions
  9. 1/2 cup bean sprouts (i sprouted some moong beans, but whatever you can get hold of)

  • Put the couscous in a bowl and cover with boiling water. If you want tastier couscous (but with more salt), add some veg stock powder. stir and leave to soak.
  • Meanwhile, chop the cabbage and chilli finely. Grate the ginger and slice up the spring onions.
  • Once the couscous is no longer gritty, toss together with the rest of the ingredients, adding more seasoning if required.
