Tasty 5 minute cous cous lunch (which actually IS tasty!)

5 minute cous cous lunch

I fancied something healthy for lunch today, and this is packed with taste and goodness, and best of all it only takes 5 minutes to throw together! I’ve always found cous cous a bit bland, but I recently discovered these packets of flavoured cous cous and they’re much more tasty!


  • Ainsley Harriot lime & coriander cous cous
  • 2 tomatoes
  • Pack of cooked king prawns
  • 1 avocado
  • Fresh basil leaves
  • 1/2 lemon

All you do is boil a kettle and mix the packet of cous cous with some boiling water (about 160ml) and leave to stand for a few minutes. While the cous cous is standing cut up the tomatoes and avocado. Then simply mix everything together and squeeze over some lemon – lovely!

Serves 2
