What’s for dinner? – Easy recipe for when you need a weekend to recover from the weekend

How was your weekend? We took it really easy, it’s my first weekend back in town so naturally we had loads of laundry and chores to catch up on. The last thing I want is to then have to drag myself out for dinner but I also don’t want to expend my remaining energy on making dinner but I want home food.

It’s all too “I know what I don’t want but I don’t know what I want but I know I want it now.” I KNOW! TIRESOME!

What then?

This Spicy Vegetarian Cous Cous Goreng has been a breakthrough over here. I always have a few random odds and ends hanging out in the veggie drawer of the fridge. When I make cous cous I can never make just the right amount there’s always an extra container of it. I keep a few spare packets of spice paste so all I do is just grab everything and throw it together and dinner is done! It’s so satisfying and warming, best of all you can just make it in the one pot and that’s as good as it gets, washing up wise.

So so easy! It’s my new favourite way to have cous cous. And you can sneak in all those vegetables.

Ingredients: 

Your choice of cooked grains: rice, cous cous, quinoa, oats, barley etc

A packet of spice paste (don’t be afraid to try other flavours too! Great ones to use are green/red/yellow curry paste)

Chopped veg (the softer the vegetable, like leaves, the less time it needs to cook)

Bit of oil, I like coconut oil, but use whatever you like

Options: fried egg, shredded meat, or leave out to keep it vegetarian

And yes, I am using my rice cooker to cook dinner. There’s no gas for my stove but I will always find a way hahaha.

Enjoy your Monday! xx
