Couscous and Quinoa packets

All couscous recipes can be adapted to use interesting substitutes or combinations of ingredients instead of the plain couscous grain, not that there's anything wrong with couscous by itself.

One of my favourites is to use a blend of couscous with quinoa.

You have to boil the quinoa for a few minutes first, then add an equal measure of couscous and leave to swell. That's all there is to it, using half quantity of quinoa for a couscous recipe.
