I have yet again been in the kitchen whipping up a healthy meal. I decided to pre-prep my lunches to make it easier to stay on track. This Week was the lovely looking Veggie cous cous which was in my Simple Start guide.
- 2 Peppers in your colour preference.
- 1 whole can of Chickpea's
- 75g Cous cous (Whole Wheat)
- 1/2 a red Onion
- Cherry Tomato
- Lemon (for the Zest)
- Fry Light
Once you have it all chopped up into chunks, spread it out onto a baking tray and spreay with Fry light. Shake it up a bit, then pop in the oven for 20mins at 200'c.
Whilst this is cooking away put your wholewheat cous cous into a bowl and pour over 115ml of boiling hot water, cover and leave for 10 mins.
Pour the chickpea's into a pan and heat slowly until they are hot. Dont let them boil though!
Once the veggies have roasted for 20 mins, pop the tomatoes on top and give them a spritz with the fry light and shake them up. Leave them in for 10mins, and then they will look like this...
At this point i tasted some of the peppers, and Ohhhhh myyyyy, they tasted amazing!
Now is the time to get the Lemon and give it a grate to get the lovely zest... I used the whole lemon and my cous cous tastes a bit like Cif... So I would say Use half.
Then you just need to mix the roasted veg, the cous cous and the Zest together and its ready to eat!
