Cooking that you cannot mess up (Pt. 1). Cous-cous salad.

I'm going to document some of the stuff that I have cooked which are really easy and delicious.  These recipes are so easy an engineer cannot mess them up.  I promise.

1. Cous-Cous Salad with Baked Pumpkin, Broccolini and Goats Cheese.

Cous-cous salad is quite a common thing popping up in cafés and restaurants these days and this my own variation on it which I hope you'll agree is much more delicious.

Step 1) Chop up some broccolini and pumpkin; mix them up in a bowl with olive oil and couple of cloves of garlic (to taste), and bake them in the oven until the broccolini goes dark and crispy.

Step 2) Make a leafy salad of your choice (top right) with crunchy raw celery and carrot pieces, prepare 200g of cous-cous and throw in some whole black peppers (top left).  Make your own pesto by smashing up a handful of coriander and rosemary with a squeeze of lemon juice, a pinch of chilli flakes and a dash of vinegar (bottom).  You can do it with a mortar and pestle or with a blender.  I prefer the former.

Step 3) Chuck everything together and keep stirring.  Leave the pesto till last.

Step 4) Enjoy!!
