While this recipe is higher in cholesterol and fat due to the prawns (which is why it has not been given the "heart healthy" tick), the prawns are actually high in antioxidants and the vegetables in this recipe make it a healthy choice, so it can be eaten as part of a healthy diet once in a while.
- 200g wholewheat cous cous (use 100g rice or lentils for a gluten-free variation)
- 100g wholegrain quinoa
- 300g prawns (you can use more if you like), peeled, leave tail on
- 3 carrots, cut into 2-3cm thin sticks
- 1 eggplant, cut into small cubes
- 1 red (Spanish) onion, chopped finely
- 3 cloves garlic, crushed and chopped finely
- 12-16 snow peas, cut julienne
- 4 tsp sesame seeds
- 4 tsp pine nuts
- 1 vegetable stock cube (use an organic one)
- Olive oil
- Fresh coriander leaves
- Finely chop the garlic and onions and to a pan with some olive oil.
- Saute the garlic and onion at medium heat until they are translucent.
- In a pan, add 3 cups of water to the quinoa with a pinch of salt and a small amount of olive oil and boil until the quinoa opens a little (about 5-7 minutes) with the lid on, checking on the quinoa to see when it is finished.
- Meanwhile, add 200g cous cous with about 2-3 teaspoons of olive oil, the stock cube and 300ml of boiling water and let simmer uncovered for about 1 minute, after which you need to turn off the heat and place a lid on the pan. After about 4-5 minutes of this, fluff the cous cous with a fork and set aside.
- Add the carrots to the pan with the garlic and onion and saute for a few minutes.
- Add the eggplant to the pan and sauteed a little more. Add a little olive oil and/or water if there is not enough liquid to get the eggplant cooked properly.
- Drain the quinoa and add it to the pan with the cous cous.
- In a large serving bowl, add the quinoa/cous cous, then slowly add the vegetables and then the prawns and mix through thoroughly.
- Serve immediately, topped with the snow peas, some chopped coriander, a sprinkle of sesame seeds and pine seeds.
