A little 5 minute recipe today : a hearty tomatoey couscous. I fucking love couscous ! I think couscous is the best hiking food you can get : it’s nutritious (especially wholemeal couscous), it’s compact as it fluffs up, it’s water saving… but mainly it’s delish’ ! So delish’ I might swear a little bit…
So for this couscous for one fucking hungry person you will need
- 111g couscous
a tiny capsicum
chilly paste (or chili flakes)
mixed seeds (flaxseeds, sesame and chia)
savoury yeast flakes
garlic powder, smoked paprika, cracked pepper
and about 400mL of Water
Okay so start boiling the water and add 2 big badass spoons of tomato paste and the little capsicum roughly diced.
Never forget : no couscous is complete without couscous. Turn down your burner to minimum flame and add it until it reaches a bit over half your amount of water (1 volume couscous for 1.66666666 volume water).
Then straight away add about 2 tablespoon of oil and stir it up little darling
Simmer for one minute then turn off your burner, cover and let it rest for 3 minutes.
Then wake it up by seasoning the shit out of it : Maggi seasoning, chilli paste, garlic powder, cracked pepper, smokey paprika, yeast flakes… go crazy ! Add also the seeds – it’s good for you.
You can make it look pretty if you want…
… but it’s gonna look like this eventually :
Either way, it tastes like heaven with chillis from hell, which is what you want, ain’t it ?!
