    What do you eat alongside couscous? I haven't really taken notice of it as I have no idea what to do with it.
    I guess chicken? Would you have vegetables too.....but not gravy with it though? :D


    I make the couscous and let it cool.

    Chop up tomatoes, cucumber, red onion or spring onions, red peppers (very small), radishes or any salad veg that you like, fetta cheese and olives, pepadews (I love these)

    Mix it all up and put it in a bowl.

    For a more substancial meal I have added chicken.

    You can basically add what ever you like. ;)

    Mm yeh asda tiger bread and tiger rolls are the best, got some from sainsburys and it was horrible.
    My fave snack is to bung some spicy wedges in the oven (about £1 for a bag at Asda) and put them in a roll/bread with ketchup - like a spicy chip butty mmm - Got them in the oven now!
    Also i know they're pricey but i love the steamfresh rice and veg mix sachets you bung in the oven, they are so quick. Also like to boil plain noodles in veg stock cube and bung in frozen veg. Also boil pasta and mix grated cheese with it when cooked.

    Don't have gravy, not with cous cous. The flavoured stuff as a quick snack you can have by itself, but you could pad it out with a couple of handfulls of frozen veg; peas' corn; peppers, maybe chicken or bacon

    I eat it solo or with a cold meat salad. Sometimes with tinned fish.

    Love is the answer. At least for most of the questions in my heart,
    Like why are we here? And where do we go?And how come it's so hard?
    It's not always easy,And sometimes life can be deceiving,
    I'll tell you one thing, its always better when we're together
