The dressing with the nectarines really makes this recipe delicious. It’s easy and quick to make, healthy and delicious.
I decided I am going to make more Cous Cous, as it is so versatile and takes only 5 min. And I love it!
The key to a great cous cous is some crisp veggies (not overcooked) , something sweet like raisins, nectarines or figs and a healthy creamy dressing. (Or instead of a dressing cous cous can added with the fried veg in a pan and fried with some olive oil and spice.)
You can use any combination of veggies that you have available in the fridge, and prepare it the way you like it. Make sure the veg is not overcooked.
I grilled some Zucchini in coconut oil with grated fresh garlic and paprika spice. I also added some blackened Tempe.
The Creamy Zingy Mustard Coriander Yougurt Dressing makes this really great. You don’t really taste the mustard it just gives this interesting zing to it…
Black Mustard is common in Indian cooking and has a range of health benefits from cancer prevention to clear skin. Black mustard seeds are inexpensive and can be found at any Indian spice shop. (You can also make your own wholegrain mustard with it by letting it sit in a beer and vinegar mix for a day.)
