Couscous doesn’t seem very cool anymore. These days, its all about freekah, and quinoa… and ‘ancient grains’. Well, there’s one excellent thing about couscous which everyone seems to have forgotten – it’s the quickest, easiest ingredient in the world to prepare. No more effort than a cup of tea – seriously! Simply cover your couscous with boiling water and 60 seconds later, voila! SURELY it’s time for a couscous comeback!?
Once again, today’s dish takes full advantage of store-bought and pre-cooked bits and pieces, to minimise prep time. We’re rinsed and re-fried canned chickpeas in a little sumac, salt and pepper to give them a lift, and we’ve included store-bought hommous, because sadly the days of making homemade dip appear to be behind me (at least for now!).
And then there’s fried HALOUMI. Which really speaks for itself… I would eat it with every meal if I could!
