Couscous - two simple and delicious recipe ideas

While shopping in a Mega Image, I came across an interesting mix: couscous with hemp seeds. I hadn't eaten Couscous in a long time, much less hemp seeds, so I grabbed a bag without a specific recipe in mind.

When I got home, I was amazed to find that preparations it will be lighter than I thought, since it should not be boiled, but simply pour hot water over it, cover and then let it swell for 5 minutes. So it's perfect for the days when you're on the run and don't have much time for more complicated cooking. Basically, it's like making tea.

ithemp minds they are very nutritious, have a high content of proteins, fibers and minerals, and the oil obtained from them is rich in omega 6 and omega 3 polyunsaturated fatty acids. Couscous-ul is actually a semolina made of durum wheat, small, being very popular in Moroccan cuisine, where it is prepared with chicken, vegetables and spices.

We made two dishes, both simple but consistent and tasty:

I prepared first couscous-ul. As I said above, you just have to pour boiled water over it and let it penetrate a little & # 8211 use a measure of water to a measure of couscous.

While the couscous was lazy in the heat, I pan-fried it onion with a little oil and water, then I added other vegetables: carrots, peas, peppers, tomatoes, cauliflower and broccoli. After they boiled a little, I put some more mashed tomatoes, and when the food was almost ready, I poured the couscous over and mixed. It is important to have more sauce, because anyway the couscous absorbs quite a lot of liquid and you risk a too "dry" food.

Couscous dessert with milk

Instead of using water, I warmed up a bit milk, then I poured it over the couscous, along with 3 teaspoons of orange flower essence. I added Chia seeds, for more consistency, I mixed well and then let it sit for a few minutes. I caressed him with cinnamon, cardamom and almonds, I sweetened a little honey and that's it! It smells great and is only good to serve as a dessert or snack.
