Vegetable Cous Cous

Makes: 4 Servings
Cooking Time 20 minutes

Vegetable oil
1 onion, finely chopped
1 clove of garlic, finely chopped or crushed
1 carrot, sliced
1 red pepper, sliced
1 courgette, sliced
100g (4 oz) french beans, sliced
300ml (1/2 pint) vegetable stock
175g (7 oz) couscous
Small handful of chopped coriander

1) Heat oil in a pan and add onion and carrot. Cook for about 10 minutes until softened then add the other vegetables and the garlic. Cook for a few minutes, then add the stock and cook for another 10 minutes.
2) Meanwhile cook the couscous. (I pour enough boiling water to just cover it, stir in a bit of olive oil and then leave it to absorb the water.)
3) Put couscous on plates and ladle vegetable mixture over the top. Sprinkle with chopped coriander before serving.
