I just realised it is a while since I gave you an easy-peasy wheat and dairy free recipe. Remember there are tons in the Recipes category you can search through and there is always the recipe book, too. Anyway, here’s a nice one for you:
Couscous With Herbs and Pomegranate Seeds
Put 200g barley couscous (Belazu range; you can find it in the poshy section in supermarkets) in a bowl and pour over enough boiling water or bouillon stock to cover it. Make sure you get the dairy and wheat free Marigold Bouillon powder, they all look the same. Cover and let it steam for a bit whilst you make the rest of the dish.
First, make some dressing by mixing some olive oil and balsamic vinegar, shake or stir well and set aside.
Dice some cucumber, pepper and anything else that needs using up in the fridge, a few spring onions maybe, or red onion can give a nice kick. Chop a good pile of parsley and basil.
Take the cover off the couscous, season and fluff it up with a fork. Then, throw all the veggies and herbs in and give it all a good mix. Top with the dressing whilst it is warm and the couscous will absorb it beautifully.
Sprinkle a good measure of pomegranate seeds on top, which makes it super-healthy, gives crunch and looks lovely. Serve whilst slightly warm for a delicious lunch or take some with you in a box to work as it is nice cold too. For dinner, it would go well with a couple of lamb chops.
