Simple Start: Roasted Vegetable Cous Cous!
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!
Update on my weight loss journey so far...
I lost another 1/2 lb this week, which brings me to 4lbs lost in total. I am proud that i haven't gained at all since i started back at weight watchers!
I'm aiming for 1/2 lb a week, anything more is a bonus!
