A dish that I just Had to share with you!..
You probably wouldn’t believe this.. but before I never ever cooked a couscous meal. I got inspired by my friend Mirte who made me and my friends this amazing meal a few weeks back. She used plums in her dish, and I love fruit in food that’s all spicy and salty..
So I decided to prepare a couscous meal myself. I just bought some ingredients I thought would make a nice and robust ensemble.
What? Chicken legs – (red)Onion – Zucchini – Plums – Apricots
Herbs: Cinnamon – Parsley – Morrocon Herbs (turmeric,coriander,paprika,caraway,salt,sugar) – salt -garlic
I don’t really work with recipes or something, just add the herbs like you think is fine. I threw some cinnamon and moroccan herbs on the chicken, baked it in a pan with the onion and some olive oil and after e few minutes added the zucchini.
Ater 5/7 minutes when the chicken has a nice crispy layer, add water so the chicken is at least half way under and gets steamed. Put a lid on the pan and leave to cook for about 10 min.
I added a hand full of (dried) plums, apricots and parsley and left it cooking for another 10 minutes.
Prepare the couscous like your package says.. and in 30 minutes your done!
I had some sheep-cheese in my fridge so I added some of that as well, tastes quite nice! You can totally use feta/goats-cheese as well, or add some other ingredients like mango, peas, beans maybe or change the zucchini to broccoli.
I was quite happy with this meal, enjoy if you want to try yourself as well.. and if any questions just leave a comment!
