Spicy vegetable couscous

Origin: Ayshea (but not sure where from originally)

The couscous recipe: (serves 2 pretty generously and makes it pretty spicy)


  • 1 onion
  • garlic
  • 1 potato
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 1 green pepper
  • 1 courgette
  • some okra
  • raisins or sultanas
  • 2 tsps black or yellow mustard seeds
  • tsp paprika
  • tsp cayenne pepper
  • s&p
  • couscous

Par-boil potatoes.
Heat spices in oil til they smoke and crackle but don't burn (they do go brown), add onion and garlic; fry for a bit; add other veg and raisins (just as you chop them is fine) and the potatoes and salt and pepper. Cook til it looks ready - about twenty to thirty minutes - keeping it moist and stirring occasionally. Eat with couscous.
