This week we made a very tasty and very healthy meal which was seafood and vegetable cous cous. This can also be made with chicken or lean pork.


  • Seafood x 2 cups
  • 2 cups of cous cous
  • Broccolli x 2 cups
  • 2 large tomatoes – chopped up
  • Tomato based sauce (home made with 5 blended tomatoes or bought from the supermarket)
  • Half a cup of low fat cottage cheese
  • 1 red onion
  • 1 courgette
  • Chopped basil
  • Sea salt and cracked black pepper

To cook the cous cous place it in a bowl and pour on boiling water (enough to fully cover the cous cous) then cover for 5 minutes for the cous cous to absorb all of the water – then it is cooked – SUPER easy. You can also use rice or Quinoa in this dish instead of cous cous

Next cook the onion, seafood, sliced up courgette, tomato and broccolli in a large pan and add in the tomato sauce, chopped basil and low fat cottage cheese. When everything is cooked and the cottage cheese blended in add in the cooked cous cous and season with the sea salt and cracked black pepper.
