How to Cook: Pea, Barley and Green Lentil Stew

There hasn’t been any posts from me for a while, between work, life and now Covid-19 I’ve had little time to myself. I’m learning to juggle (promise)… so that’s a plus.

Anyway, I’m still cooking and have invented this little gem which I eat for lunch at work. I simply defrost and reheat in the micorwace for 2.5 minutes and viola, a nutritional, filling bowl of hearty goodness!

I’m not quite sure what to call it though… although I use a pea and barley broth mix, it’s more like an alternative risotto than a soup or stew. However, whatever you (or I) decide to call it, I can safely say it takes absolutely fabulous!

Only taking 20 minutes to bulk cook four meals, you’ll be mad not to give it a try.

How to Cook: Moroccan Cous Cous

I have recently become obsessed with cous cous – it’s easy, ready in 5 minutes, and requires minimal clean up. Not only that but it’s a filling and healthy lunch that will see you through to dinner.

What’s even better it is so versatile that you can interchange flavours so that you will never get bored.

I like to add a variety of nuts, fruits, vegetables, and meats to create a well-balanced meal which is ready for me to defrost and eat when needed.

If you like this simple dish, then I have many a cous cous creation for you to try so check back soon for more and let me know how it goes.
