Have You Got 10 Minutes?


Have you got 10 minutes? Do you like vegetarian dishes? Do you like couscous? Dried fruit? Do you like to have a healthy diet? Are you tired of cooking? Is it so hot outside that drains you out with cooking? If you answer is ‘yes’ to at least 3 of these questions, then read this recipe and why not eat it fresh, as it is best that way. My inspiration for this is Β the cookbook ‘Quick Meals in Minutes’, 2001.

Fruit and Almond Couscous

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Serves 4

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups (400 g) couscous
  • 2 cups (500 ml) boiling chicken stock or just boiling water if you are fasting
  • 40 g butter or oil of any kind, preferably cold pressed, again, if you are fasting
  • 1/4 cup (35 g) dried currants
  • 1/4 cup (35 g) dried apricots, chopped finely
  • 1/4 cup (35 g) slivered almonds, toasted
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh coriander

Method:

  • Place couscous in medium heatproof bowl; add boiling stock and butter.
  • Toss couscous gently, using a fork, until liquid is absorbed.
  • Add the remaining ingredients; mix gently. Serve it fresh as it is or as a side dish with spiced wings if you like.

Bon appetite!
