I kind of fell into this recipe rather than taking time to create it.
To be fair there isn’t much cooking going on, rather assembling ingredients together. So it was my Tuesday morning session with Patricia. Patricia is smiley super fit Brazilian yoga teacher, who runs a fusion class…something between yoga and insanity. As I stagger out I feel like need to feed my muscles, asap!
This recipe is great for post work out… quick, high in protein and seriously satisfying, if you are just cooking for yourself half the ingredients and you can keep half in the fridge for later or the next day.
Ready in 15min
200ml boiling water
½ tsp ground cumin
240g tuna (two small tins)
240g chickpeas (1 tin)
¼ tsp mustard (I like English)
½ lemon, squeezed
2 tomatoes, quartered
salt and pepper to taste
Place the couscous in a shallow dish then pour over the boiling water. Cover the dish with cling film, and allow the couscous to swell up and all the water should be absorbed. Leave for about 5 minutes and then fork through to separate the grains
Add the cumin to the couscous, a good glug of olive oil, tuna, chickpeas, ¼ tsp of mustard, squeeze in ½ lemon. Give a good stir and add salt and pepper to taste. Finish with quartered tomatoes and roughly chopped coriander…Bon apetite!
