As a self confessed greedy git I am pretty distressed when I have an unsatisfactory meal. I plan meticulously so that this happens as little as possible, but sometimes, when you are busy and cupboards not full, cobbled together food may need to happen. I prepare myself to be disappointed (I don’t take food failures well).
However, when a suspected measly lunch ends up being flaming delicious, I then have to control my delight and my mastication rate, as I furiously gobble my unexpectedly delightful dish.
A humble couscous and salad did this for me today. It sounds boring, which is why I wasn’t enthused, but with a little help from some peri peri seasoning, AMAZING smoked tofu and the mouth burning delight that is red onion, I was well happy. Other beauties in this dish included some strong cheddar sheese, mixed into the warm cous cous along with the tofu, tomato, lettuce and sunflower seeds, accompanied by a small amount of red onion. Just look at it! LUSH! Now I just have to deal with the disappointment of it being over!
