    Couscous, quinoa and the like all need flavour adding to them. When you cook them dont add just water try stock. Add herbs and spices. They are there for the fiber not their taste. They are also not low carb so watch their amounts on your blood glucose level (potatoes are 17g couscous are 23g per 100 )

    If it's useful for anyone, the coconut, chicken and pumpkin dish I made yesterday was nice. I was in "use up leftovers" mode so don't have an exact recipe but it went something like this:

    I heated some chicken fat from the previous day's roast and fried some onion and garlic. Then I added 500 g of frozen pumpkin cubes which I allowed to heat gently. Then I started adding spices (generic yellow curry powder, dried ginger (didn't have any fresh), cinnamon stick, chicken stock cube), then some cooked chicken breast (leftovers from my roast), enough coconut milk to coat everything and then more of the same spices to taste. The pumpkin went a bit mushy so maybe that can be added in later but it tasted good.

    There are also other variations on the web.

    Also tried making coffee panna cotta without sugar and with a couple of squares of 98% choc whisked in. I'd leave the chocolate out next time and look into using sweeteners!

    For budget tight, home cooks nut milks are extremely easy to make yourself. Amond milk is pre soaked (overnight in water) almonds Coconut milk is fresh coconut. Place in a food processor with at least 2 cups of water blitz until all the chunks are tiny and the water looks milky. Strain and volia instant nut milk no added sugar. Keep the "waste" nut to put into your cooking as extra fiber or bake and grind into nut flour. Youtube is your friend if you need more instructions.

    Yeah, it wasn't proper cous cous, it was all different vegetables grated to look like cous cous. It's ready made from Tesco. :)
