Couscous Balls – Seriously it works
I jumped up and down when it did, a happy combination.
Sometimes towards the end of the week, I look in my fridge and wonder what to do with its contents. This is cooking off-piste and actually the most exciting and creative. Somethings are nearly there and need tweaking, somethings just work straight away. I had ½ a butternut squash, a bunch of spinach and some cooked couscous left from a previous dish. Drum roll please as I lift the tea towel and bring you………
COUSCOUS BALLS A NEW WAY TO EAT COUSCOUS
I ate six in the testing and they sold so quickly I had to make another batch. First time around I used fresh spinach, apricots and blue cheese because that is what I had to hand, in the second batch I used frozen spinach, feta and cranberries, which I photographed. The soft centre and crunchy outside make this dish a versatile winner, use what you have. I served them with an aubergine relish that I made and then a fig relish that was store bought, they are not fussy and ate well with both. On a salad or in a wrap or pita, try them. You’re welcome!!
