Tasty Moroccan Cous Cous


This dish has been my staple summer lunch/dinner/everything side dish...


Super tasty, filling and inexpensive for a crowd. Serve it with my Moroccan tagine for an authentic supper. This was cooked for me by my mum and I absolutely love it . It basically goes with anything and can spruce up a boring salad lunch!

You will need to serve 6:

500g Cous Cous
2oz butter - omit if you want it to be super healthy
4oz raisins
400ml stock chicken or veg
6 tbsp olive oil
2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp paprika
1-2 deseeded chillies - chopped
Handful or both mint and coriander chopped up really small
Juice of 2 limes

Put cous, raisins and some salt in a bowl and add the boiled stock - cover and leave for 10 mins.

once cooled fluff it up with a fork.

Heat olive oil in a pan, add the paprika and cumin stirring for 2-3 minutes. Add the chilli and take off the heat to cool.

Add the flavoured oil to the cous cous once cooled.

Add the lime juice, mint and coriander - voila!
