• Prawns and Spinach Couscous


    Photography © Ana Degenaar So we all know I love cooking and eating (!) by now but what I haven't told you is how much I've been disliking eating out lately. I don't even understand it myself, it doesn't really matter how healthy my choices are I always feel a little bit let down when I don't eat at my place or my friend's homes. I've always been sort of picky but I've reached a new limit and it isn't fun because some times I simply don't have the time to prep complicated meals so I'm learning to work with fewer, easier ingredients. This recipe takes less than 15 minutes to cook and it's one of my favorites. Please, feel free to make your own version of it.

    What you need:
    1 cup of instant couscous
    1 cup of chopped spinach leaves
    1/2 chopped red pepper
    1 cup of large prawns
    1 T of mint leaves
    Salt, pepper and cumin
    Black sesame seeds (optional)
    Olive oil

    The Process
    Cook the couscous following the instructions in the box or use this recipe. Cover it while you saute the spinach and red pepper and season that with salt, pepper and cumin, in a bowl season your prawns (shelled and clean) with salt, a little fresh black pepper, garlic and a few drops or olive oil, cook them on a hot grill for 1.5 minutes on each side and transfer them to a bowl, be careful not to overcook your prawns. Mix the couscous with the cooked spinach and red pepper and toss some mint leaves, a few drops of lemon and a little more olive oil. Top that with the cooked prawns, sprinkle sesame seeds and enjoy your weekend!
