[Recipe]: Vegetarian Feta, Avacado and Courgette Cous Cous. 

To deter away from only sharing recipes which are usually hearty overfilling dishes, I thought I would share a light satisfying Cous Cous recipe with you. It takes only 15-20 minutes, with Cous Cous prepared beforehand.

Ingredients:

  • A small courgette/zucchini
  • Regular Cous Cous
  • Feta cubes
  • Half of an Avacado
  • Fresh coriander leaves
  • Half of a yellow bell pepper
  • A handful of canned chickpeas
  • Olive oil
  • Black pepper

Recipe (serves 2):

  1. Cook two cups of unflavoured Cous Cous, using the guidelines highlighted on it’s packaging. Leave to cool for a few hours; doing this overnight is most helpful. Be careful not to make the Cous Cous too sticky.
  2. After the alloted time or over night the Cous Cous will have cooled. Now you can chopped a small courgette/zucchini into small cubes, combine with the Cous Cous in a large bowl.
  3. Cut half of a yellow bell pepper and half of a ripe Avacado into similar sized pieces as the courgette. Tip these into the Cous Cous.
  4. Finely chop a small handful of fresh coriander, scatter the leaves over the over ingredients.
  5. With clean hands mix the vegetables and Cous Cous together, following this add 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil. Mix together once again.
  6. Drain a can of chickpeas. Add half a cup of them to the Cous Cous dish along with half a cup of drained Feta cubes. Mix gently with your hands, adding just a pinch of black pepper and salt to taste.
  7. Serve chilled.

If you dislike coriander, parsley works well too. The courgette can be spiralised if you wish to do so. Grated carrot can act as a courgette replacement.
