Fiery corn couscous

We enjoy couscous as a side dish alternative to rice, pasta and potatoes. It’s so quick and easy to make so I was pleased to find corn couscous in the free from aisle at the supermarket. it has the same texture as “normal” couscous but I find it a little drier so add a little olive oil and lemon juice. This recipe is a lovely summery spicy side dish which I often serve with chicken.


  • Half cup of corn couscous
  • 1 red chilli
  • 1 spring onion
  • Fresh coriander
  • Lemon juice
  • Olive oil


  1. Put the couscous into a cup and just cover with boiling water from the kettle. Let stand for 5 minutes.
  2. Finely chop the chilli, spring onion and coriander.
  3. transfer the couscous to a bowl and fluff up with a fork.
  4. Add the chopped chilli, onion and coriander and toss to mix.
  5. Drizzle over a little olive oil and the juice of half a lemon. Toss again to mix.
