Couscous Soup

          Couscous is a very common ingredient found in Mediterranean salads. I decided to try out a soup out of it. So here is a healthy one-pot meal of couscous soup which is full of flavour and is a wholesome treat.

           I prepared it in a curried form along with some coriander and mint leaves. The addition of stock gives a very unique taste. You can also use some maggi soup cubes. This nutritious soup when had with a dash of lime gives an extra zing to it.

  • 1/2 cup couscous
  • handful of coriander leaves, chopped
  • handful of mint leaves, chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2-3 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 tsp. ginger, chopped
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • salt to taste
  • pepper powder to taste
  • 4 cups stock / water
  • lime juice to taste

          Add 1/2 cup hot water to the couscous and let it stand covered for 15 minutes. Meanwhile heat oil in a pan and saute the onion, garlic and ginger till light brown in colour.

          Add the couscous, 4 cups stock, salt, pepper powder, coriander leaves and mint leaves. Pressure cook for 2-3 whistles.

          When cool, blend it to a puree. Just before serving, heat through and serve with a dash of lime.
