Trying new things - Pearl couscous
I was stalking the aisles of my local supermarket the other day and the beaming smile of Australia's original favourite French chef*, Mr Gabriel Gate caught my eye on this Blu Gourmet Pearl Couscous.
I cooked it using the recipe on the side of the box - genius, I know - onions, stock and parsley. And I served it with mushrooms (cooked using that amazing recipe from a few posts ago). It turned out to be a really filling and delicious meal.
I'd been looking for pearl couscous for ages after eating it at Maha's and couldn't find it - even in the market spice shops. How ironic that I found it in the local Coles with a celebrity chef on the pack!
Here's how the meal turned out. Yes, I waited a few seconds and took a pic before I shoved it in my gob.
Have you noticed that seemingly everything in my kitchen is green?! I promise there are some other colours in there somewhere. Also, my friend Jodie gave me a really simple little recipe today to help me with my "I'm going to learn to love avocado" self-imposed challenge. I'll whip it up later in the week and post it asap.
