    Should be a student favourite!
    It's easy to make (just heat water with a bit of oil or butter) & stir in.
    Very versatile, cheap & delicious.

    I use wholewheat couscous.

    Nive with a hard boiled egg, raisins (added to soften) or peas + mayonaise.

    Any suggestions?

    Ooh I am a massive fan of couscous. My favourite recipe is to use heated freshly squeezed orange juice instead of water, and add some smoked mackerel, chives, a smidge of sesame oil and a bit of soy sauce.

    Practically lived off the stuff that comes in packets in my first year at uni when I didn;t have a kitchen

    I like it in principle, but its never worked out well for me. I think I need to be far more advanturous with the flavourings, everytime i've made it its been like a bowl of sand.

    Sounds full-flavoured!
    Have you trued it with salmon instead?

    I'm no culinary expert but I would have thought the heating would destroy the vitamin C.

    That's what happens if you don't heat the water enough first.

    I like it, the best one I've had is feta cheese and olive.

    And the one I usually have is made with vegetable stock.
