Following on from my post about our visit from La Cuisine Imaginaire cookery school, today I am attempting to recreate a version of the dish which Roselyne showed us how to make. The dish is a Tomato Couscous bake. I have never been very good at cooking with couscous, mainly because I am not amazingly good at coming up with ideas of what to make with it. However, it is a super ingredient to use if you are a vegetarian as it is full of protein, fibre and B vitamins. It also adds bulk to dishes to help them to fill you up and go further. This Couscous bake was really easy to make, quick to assemble and was also really delicious. I will definitely be making it again! I think it would be especially great to eat in the summer.
For the tomato base, I used onion, pepper, tomatoes and courgettes, but you could use any vegetables you would like. Mushrooms and sweetcorn might be a good addition, or you could maybe use some root vegetables for a really hearty meal in the cold winter months.
