Summer Bar-be-Cous

To mark National Barbecue Week, Celebrating Mums wanted to try out an accompaniment to meat and fish recipes.

We are big barbecue fans enjoying all the family getting together for good food and laughter. Like in a lot of families, it is Mr Celebrating Mums who does the cooking. What is it about men and barbecues?

One man we would welcome to our barbecue is celebrity chef, Ainsley Harriott. However, in his absence, we can recommend his cous cous as a good additon to barbecue joys.

I thought I did not like cous cous. I associated it with dry yuckiness from my student days where I dallied with vegetarianism. I have avoided it for 20 years. However, I really liked the Roasted Vegetable cous cous from Ainsley’s exciting range of flavours.

The cous cous was tasty and I could eat it quite happily on its own as well as with other foods. it can be served hot or cold. For the health concious, it contains less than 2 per cent fat so you could replace your chips with something tasty and good for you too.

Ainsley’s cous cous come in 100g sachets and can be made within 5 minutes with minimum fuss. You simply add boiled water and fluff with a fork.

I have fussy eaters amongst my children but they liked the cous cous too. That does not mean your children will but it does mean it is worth a try.

The Ainsley cous cous range comes in 8 exotic flavours from around the world. Give them a try this Summer!

  2. In the States people BBQ as soon as it stops snowing outside! My husband cooks all sumemr long which is fab, and everything goes on. Small potatoes, quartered and rubbed with olive oil, garlic and herbs wrapped in foil; squash/zuchinni, you name it. Asparagus wrapped in prosciutto and grilled till crisp is just THE best.
