Cous Cous is so easy to make and so quick too, I love the fact theres no boiling or steaming. You can just pop it in a bowl, pop on some boiling water and leave for ten minutes. To add a bit of extra flavour to Cous Cous add some stock to the boiling water.Done!

Cous Cous goes with some many other ingredients and is a traditional addition to North African food, often with a stew added on to it.

The ease with which you can cook it means it makes a great lunch box dish or fill it out more and have it as a dinner salad. Here I have added some tangy feta to it, combined it with feta's best friend avocado and then heated it up a bit with a good dose of chilli.
