Recipe: Parsley and sweetcorn couscous

Parsley and sweetcorn couscous

Preparation Time: 10 minutes.
Serves 2

Just less than 1 cup couscous
Just less than 1 cup boiling water
1 cup parsley
1/2 cup sweetcorn, un-creamed

Place the couscous in a bowl. Pour the hot boiling water over the couscous. Cover with a lid and allow to stand for about 5-7 minutes. Chop the parsley very finely. It may be easier to place the parsley in a cup and to cut it finely using scissors. Remove the lid from the couscous, and stir gently with a fork until the pieces separate. Mix in the parsley and sweetcorn.

Tip Serve this with your choice of protein to make a healthy meal. For a slightly different taste to the couscous, you can use water flavoured with a small amount of vegetable stock or lemon juice.
