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.
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
Salt & Pepper
Splash to Tabasco
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.
