Seed Stacked - Sprinkle Some Goodness & Organic Wholemeal CousCous [by @NLi10]



Veggie/vegan food is as exciting as you want it to be. Here we have some odd seeds that I found in the fruit and veg section of Asda.  The usual bits - herbs spices and (sunflower/pumpkin/sesame/flax) seeds with the tiniest bits of sun dried tomato. Boil the kettle pour on the couscous and then mix this in and you have a great vegetarian dinner...


that is ready to be contaminated with some lovely ham!


The seed mix really does add to the couscous in the same way that adding your own herbs and spices does. The main difference is that it not only adds to the texture but the flavours are less homogenous.  I think this is a good alternative to buying the pre-flavoured couscous (which I stopped doing ages ago now) but they aren't that cheap (£1 per sachet) so you'd maybe be better off rationing them over 3 portions so that the flavours and the contents go further.  A family of four portion I guess! (they suggest its two servings per pack)

I like the good, strong flavours and the idea that you can simplify making healthy food more exciting is certainly one we approve of.  Not to difficult to mix something like this up yourself though I guess!

We love couscous in our house - especially the lemon and coriander flavour. i,like the idea of bulking it out using this.
