How to Make Curried chicken and green beans couscous

Step-by-Step

  1. You could start by preparing the couscous first according to pack instructions but this is how I normally prepare it. I normally place it in a bowl and mix the dry couscous with a pinch of salt and pepper, sometimes 1 tsp of Italian herbs and pour boiling water over about 2 cm above the couscous level and cover immediately with a lid or a plate. I allow it to rest for 20-25 minutes or so without touching or uncovering it. This way will soak and get ready beautifully.
  2. Choose a deeper frying pan and add the coconut oil along with your chopped and possibly half frozen
  3. Add the curry powder and mix well followed by the cauliflower florets, leek and the cherry tomatoes. Allow to cook either covered or uncovered for an extra 5-7 min.
  4. In the last minute of cooking stir in the remaining of the garlic. Take off the heat and add the chopped parsley or coriander.
  5. Add the fluffy couscous and mix well.
  6. Serve hot and if you have any left over, the next day lunch could also be sorted as it's still delicious!
