Cous Cous

Lovely with lamb, steak, chicken or fishfingers (yes really!) or cold as a salad.

Five minutes prep, five minutes 'cooking'

Serves 4 (probably with leftovers for lunch)

Finely chop about 3 spring onions and a couple of peppers (I usually use one red, one yellow).

Add a stock cube to 250 mls of boiling water (whatever kind suits what you are having with it)

Put 200g of cous cous in a warmed pan, stir in stock and put the lid on for a minute with the heat on. Turn heat off, stir in peppers and spring onions and put lid back on for four minutes.

Stir in a bit of olive oil and some lemon juice (about 2-3 tsps of each)

And that's it!

If you do not have any spring onions, finely chop a small onion, but soften it in a little bit of the oil in the pan before adding anything else.

I sometimes use a seasoned/flavoured oil eg chilli oil - very tasty!
