Pomegranate couscous – a quick and simple dish

For hours standing in the kitchen to cook an elaborate dish. For many, a nightmare for me, more of a pleasure. At least this is so, since we have completely renovated the kitchen and dining area after a major renovation action. Having over 5 years in a mini-kitchen with just 1 meter worktop – or rather two 50cm – had to cook, I have since the end of December my absolute dream kitchen: open and with MUCH place! If I had to name my favorite place in our house, then it would certainly become the kitchen. The planning was a lot of fun – on occasion I can explain this in more detail if desired – and with the result, I am totally satisfied.

Nevertheless, there are days when you barely have time or do not want to ever be in the kitchen. The perfect solution? Very clear: pasta. but since I had my entire childhood on pasta every day in different variations, I have some time looking for an alternative. And I found it: Couscous! If you've never cooked with it should do so necessarily. It's simple and it's fast – even usually faster than a pasta dish.

Today's court, for example, – from the magazine deli – cooked ready in just 15 minutes tastes warm, but the next day cold.

And, the not sound super easy to? It is! I like to do more of it and then take it in a lunch box to work. Not infrequently, the colleagues are envious 🙂
