Dried Tomato Cous Cous

This dried tomato cows nous came out of two things, my recent dried tomato sauce recipe, and the fact I have been using Cous Cous a lot recently in my diet.

A naturally low in carbohydrate grain as it is, it is also a great change from the usual rice, which I must confess, doesn’t really do it for me.

The only thing about Cous Cous is that its bland, but ultimately, it can be a great carrier of flavour.

Paired with the sweet tomatoes, this one is a real winner, and something I think you will love to add in to your daily merls.
