This week, Apricot WALNUT couscous.
Emily thinks: “This is so easy peasy and quick to make at the office – or pre-make and take.
All you need ingredient-wise is; COUSCOUS, dried apricots, Walnuts, less than half of a VEG STOCK cube, water, and Freshly Grated Nutmeg.
All you need utensil-wise is; a plastic food tub (I like to use the locking ones), fork, kettle and a knife.”
1. Boil your kettle of water (If to make and take). 2. Put your couscous into your desired pot (60g of dried makes approximatly 180g of cooked). 3. Crumble your Veg Stock into the couscous. 4. Chop your Apricots into your pot. 5. Add Nutmeg.
And you are ready to go ! Take your dried couscous like this, if you want to make me @work. Remember your walnuts in a separate bag, as you don’t want them to go soggy when you add the water.
To finish off your meal:
6. Pour over your boiling water (Emily covers the couscous by about 1cm of water, but check your couscous packets instructions). 7. Give your mix a quick stir so the stock cube dissolves evenly. 8. Cover with your lid for 5mins. 9. Add your nuts, Fluff with your fork, and Enjoy.
For extra Tasty sensations: Eat with some pre-grilled honey and lemon salmon.
Enthralling Actuality: Did you know, in Chinese, the APRICOTs name, translates as ‘moons of the faithful’.
