    I'd never even thought of using cous cous for a sweet meal/snack. I can't imagine it, so I will just have to try.

    Well, it is pretty much neutral in taste, so goes well both sweet and savoury.

    Obviously in some countries, it is traditionally used in making desserts. What you can do is use fruit juice instead of water, for exotic flavour can add some rose water. Also good idea to add a bit of butter ( both in sweet and savoury cous cous dish). Bit of sugar, cinnamon, nuts and even berries ( I buy Tesco frozen berries). There are lots and lots of variants. It is inexpensive and fun to experiment with. :j:j:j

    I am making pizzas from left over nan breads in the freezer. Defrost nan bread . In a blender add can of plum toms, tom puree tbsp, garlic puree tbsp, oregano, salt and pepper blitz and spread on nan. Add toppings of your chice and loads of cheese. I didnt know if it would taste ok, but kids and their friends plus dh loved em, result. Great way to use up leftovers, so money saving too. HTH

    I love garlic mushroom cous cous.

    Chop the mushrooms & crushed garlic in a little butter (or just add a tiny bit of garlic salt) make up the cous cous in a bowl of boiling water with cling film over the top. Mixing in a sprinkling of vegetable stock cube (only a little bit again). Mix together, voila!

    Great ideas. I will try them. Will make an interesting change from porridge in the morning. :T

    I guess it's a similar idea to the traditionally Jewish dish of Lokschen Pudding -using noodles to make a dessert.
    Looking forward to the future.
