I seem to be posting a lot of photos of my lunch recently. I think holidays are great for experimenting and trying new warm lunches rather than having cold sandwiches at school again. Anyway, here’s what I had today.
So basically I chopped up a yellow pepper into quite small chunks. Then I seasoned the dry couscous in the bowl with salt and pepper. Next I poured almost boiled water into the couscous until most of the couscous has absorbed some (I don’t like it soaking). Then cover with a lid. Meanwhile I grated some mild cheese and put this into the couscous, fluffing and mixing it in with a fork to allow the cheese to melt a bit, then pop the lid back on. Finally add the peppers and a handful of ripped basil leaves. Et voila! – done in less than 10 minutes. I also toasted some leftover bread with butter and served with a steaming cup of green tea, my favourite!
