Blu Gourmet Pearl Couscous

Liz from Haystac sent me some Blu Gourmet Pearl Couscous to try. Gourmet Pearl Couscous is made out of 100% hard wheat and then toasted to give it a nutty flavour. It’s a great source of protein and has a low GI (Glycemic Index). One of the best things about Pearl Couscous is that you can eat it hot or cold. It’s a side dish as well as a main meal and cooks in 10 minutes.

I decided to make something incredibly simple. I wanted to prepare and cook everything in 30 minutes flat. Rachael Ray style ehehe.

I made Gourmet Pearl Couscous with Garlic and Herb Prawns. I also made some salsa to go with this. The pearl couscous was just delicious. It absorbed the vegetable stock and cooked in no time at all. The texture was that of al dente pasta and it was perfect with the prawns.

Gourmet Pearl Couscous with Garlic and Herb Prawns
1 cup gourmet pearl couscous
1 ¼ cups of vegetable stock
1 small onion
5 small prawns (marinated this in lemon juice, parsley, dill, thyme, olive oil and garlic)
1 small mango
1 Lebanese cucumber
1 tomato
Salt & Pepper
Splash to Tabasco

In a saucepan with olive oil, fry onions until soft. Add pearl couscous and cook until a light brown. Add vegetable stock and simmer for 8 minutes. Stir occasionally.

In a frying pan cook prawns. This should only take a couple of minutes.
Serve pearl couscous with prawns on top and a side of salsa.

To make the salsa dice mango, tomato and cucumber. Season with a pinch of salt & pepper and some Tabasco.
