One of the things I love about writing this blog is thinking up different things to eat all of the time which allows me to be creative. At lot of the things you can make take a long time and a lot of effort but sometimes I just do not have the time or the inclination to cook all afternoon. This leads me to look for things that are tasty and quick and this is definitely one of those.

I am a big fan of couscous but when I cam across this giant whole wheat couscous when I was in my local health food shop I decided to give it a go. I can definitely recommend it, the texture is totally different to ordinary couscous and is great for this type of dish and very filling too. The bonus to using couscous is it is so easy to cook and you only really need to think about the things you are putting with it.

I have loaded this dish with veggies in different colours to get a good mix of vitamins and all those different flavours just make it so yummy. I try and use the veggies that are in season, mostly, which is why this contains leeks and purple sprouting broccoli which are so good at the moment. It really does make a difference to the flavour!
