A Taste of Spring, a Taste of Italy

Couscous is great for quick and tasty lunches.
Unlike some other grains that ‘ll make you wait for 20 minutes before you can actually consider eating it (I’m looking at you quinoa!)
You just have to pour on some boiling water and let it sit for a couple of minutes et voila, that’s your base.

All you have to do after that is add a touch of Spring!
I had to work with some leftovers I had lying around, so it’s not really special but I did came up with a great idea to make something a bit more fancy because of this, which I’ll share with you next week!

‘Mediterranean Couscous’

  • Couscous
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • half an avocado
  • pine nuts and pumpkin seeds
  • olive oil
  • pepper, basil and oregano

Pour boiling water on the couscous (ratio 1:1), let sit for a couple of minutes.
In the meantime cut up the avocado and the cherry tomatoes. Sprinkle the cherry tomatoes with some olive oil and the herbs (if you have enough time: marinate them in olive oil and herbs or use sun-dried tomatoes for some extra punch).
Fluff the couscous with a fork, add the tomatoes and  the avocado and sprinkle with the seeds.

Done in five minutes, now back to my paper…
or back to dreaming about the great couscous idea this quick lunch gave me!

Love, M.
