I love couscous. I literally can’t get enough of it. It’s not always easy to find interesting ways to serve it, though, so I tend to serve it as an accompaniment to interesting dishes. When I decided it was time for another Ifits recipe, though, things quickly pointed towards the two peppers I had in the fridge, and rice seemed like too obvious a choice – so it had to be couscous!
I found this both tasty and filling, despite it’s healthy appearance! Go on, give it a try. I dare you!
Just look at that! Isn’t it beautiful? It’s the combination of a couple different recipes I stumbled across in Sabrina Ghayour‘s Persiana. It’s another beautiful book, that I’d spent hours reading as if it was a novel.
Every recipe looked awesome, but I was surprised to see that many of them could be easily tweaked to create a healthier option. All I needed to do with these was swap oil for frylight, and the job was done!
So what we have here is Saffron & Rosemary Chicken, with Turmeric & Cumin Roast Potatoes. I served them on a Watercress, Spinach & Rocket salad, with balsamic and pomegranate seeds… but you don’t need a recipe for that part!
The end result is a low-fat, healthy meal that will fill you right up. Oh, and did I mention that it’s pretty damn tasty, too?
