A recipe for Cous Cous Salad


  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 Tin chickpeas drained (keep the water for future baking!)
  • Red Onion sliced
  • 200g frozen mixed veg
  • 50g wholemeal couscous per person
  • 1 tbsp tomato puree
  • 2tsp Cajun seasoning or paprika and your faves like cumin or all purpose
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • Handful Flaked almonds (can omit)
  • Handful raisins (optional)
  • Lemon/ lime to serve

1. Prepare the cous cous as per packet directions. While it’s soaking cook garlic and onion in 1 tbsp oil for 1 minute so the flavours start coming through. Microwave the frozen veg for 3 mins.

2. Add the dried seasonings, chickpeas, frozen veg, almond and raisins until toasted, then add tomato puree and cook for another couple of minutes, continuing to stir.
3., Turn off the heat and mix the cooked cous cous in

4. Decant into Tupperware

Any extra mixture will last in the fridge for 5 days & in the freezer for 3 months.
