Recipe | Coconut Curry Couscous

Couscous is our new thing at home. Ever since I discovered it, we haven't touched rice with a 10-foot pole. Two reasons why you should hop on the Couscous train:

  1. 1 cup of couscous contains 176 calories, that is fewer than the calories in rice or quinoa
  2. It is super easy to cook, ready in 5 mins!
It's also one of those dishes that you can let your imagination run wild with, mix and match any and everything with it and it still tastes amazing! I made this coconut curry version for lunch this past weekend when we had family visiting and it was a hit!

What you need
Will feed about 8 hungry adults 

4 cups of Couscous
1 can of coconut milk
2 cups of mixed vegetables
Half an onion
Mixed peppers
1 cup chicken stock
1 tsp turmeric


  • Add 4 tablespoons of oil to couscous, mix thoroughly and set aside 
  • In a wok, heat up one cooking spoon of oil (I use either olive or coconut oil) and fry onions until translucent
  • Add mixed peppers and fry till wilted
  • Add coconut milk, chicken stock and all other spices. Taste and adjust if necessary
  • Once the broth starts boiling, take off the heat, add couscous and cover the pot tightly with the lid. Note: The liquid should just cover the couscous. Any more and it will be mushy any less and it will be under cooked
  • After 5 mins, remove lid and fluff couscous with a fork
  • Add mixed vegetables (already pre-steamed) and mix to combine properly
  • Serve! We had this with gizdodo and it was super yum! :)
Not every time lipstick....Sometimes food...
