HEALTHY RECIPE | COUS COUS | ARE YOU DIETING? | LOSE WEIGHT
This 2016, let us all resolve to eat healthy without our salubrious food being bland and tasteless. I have this amazing recipe that you can cook in your kitchens in a jiffy. The Star of this Recipe is ‘Cous Cous’ which is a wheat/ semolina based cereal. We are going to spruce it up by adding some lovely colourful vegetables to it. So, here we go…
Ingredients to be kept ready:
1 Bell Pepper (Preferably green)
3 garlic cloves
A handful of coriander
2 green chillies
½ cup of cous cous
Mushrooms/ tofu- (Optional)
Now firstly, add water to the cous cous and heat it on medium flame. Also, add a little bit of Olive Oil to the Cous Cous while boiling so that it doesn’t stick to each other. Cook for about 5-6 mins.
In the meanwhile you can ready your cooking pan and heat some Olive Oil on the stove. Add the Garlic and green chillies followed by the onions and let it saute for about 3 minutes.
Then add the bell pepper and mix well. At this moment just add 2 teaspoons of salt.
Mix and leave it on medium flame for about 10 minutes.
Then add the tomatoes and after mixing it leave it with the lid on for 10 minutes. This will make the tomatoes a little soggy and will lend a natural puree to your dish.
And now it’s time for our Star to make it’s entry- Add the Cous Cous.
Then mix it thoroughly. After everything is mixed well, you can add some more flavour to the Cous Cous by adding some Oregano, Tabasco and Chilli Sauce. I like my Cous Cous to be a little spicy. You can make it tasty in your own way.
And now you can finally add some coriander while plating it up. And you’re ready to devour your healthy meal!
