Small Meals

If you want a quick, easy lunchtime recipe, couscous is a great choice. Here is a recipe from our book, 5 Ingredients or Less (Book 1)


Fancy-pants Couscous

(egg and dairy free)


30g of Almonds or Sunflower Seeds

2 spring onions

Small Bunch of fresh herbs (such as parsley, thyme, oregano, basil)

10g of Dried garlic flakes

2 MC of Couscous

Boiling water


What to do:

Add almonds, spring onion, garlic and herbs to thermo bowl and chop for 6 seconds, speed 5

Put into insulated bowl, and add couscous

Pour over enough boiling water that it covers the couscous by about 2-3cm

Put the lid on, and let sit for 10-15 minutes, until all the water has been absorbed

Fluff with a fork, and serve as a side dish for curries, casseroles, stews or hotpots

For something different:

If you want to turn this into a meal,
make a warm salad by adding spinach leaves,
sundried tomato, and leftover chicken or roast beef.

Dress the salad with a mix of lemon juice and olive oil.
