Summer Couscous

My mum used to make this all the time and it just reminds me of summer. This is a perfect accompaniment to frittata, quiche and a winner at a barbecue.

Ingredients (serves 2-3)

  • 1-2 bananas, sliced
  • handful of raisins/sultanas (optional)
  • squeeze of lemon juice (usually half a lemon)
  • 150g couscous

You will need:

  • Large serving bowl
  • smaller bowl with cover plate
  • sharp knife
  • fork


  • Boil kettle and pour boiling water over couscous so that it is just submerged.
  • Add lemon juice, gently stir through and cover with plate.
  • Slice bananas thinly and set aside with sultanas.
  • When couscous has soaked up all the water (approx 8-10 mins), fluff up with a fork.
  • Add fluffed couscous to serving bowl and stir in banana and sultanas.
