I often make this dish at home mainly because it is so quick and simple to realize . This salad is perfect for lunch at the office , an outdoor picnic or just for an ordinary healthy lunch . It is great for people on a diet as it is filling and tasty . Also some meat or tuna can be added to it for a more complete meal. For people that are not familiar with couscous the ingredients are easy as you need a cup of couscous for a cup of boiling water .
*2 cups of uncooked couscous
*4 cups of boiling hot vegetable stock
*2 bell peppers
*1 red onions
*1 garlic clove
*2tbsp of dry raisins
*1 tsp of hot chilli sauce
*1 small courgette
1.Heat a large skillet with some olive oil.
2.Peel and dice the vegetables , cook in the pan for 5 to 6 minutes .
3.Remove from the heat , add the couscous and stir well .
4.Add the boiling stock , stir and cover with a lid . The couscous will soak up the stock , it should take 5 minutes .
5.Remove the lid , add the chilli sauce , a drizzle of olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
6.Serve warm or cold as a salad the following day.
