Recipe: Creamy Pesto Pearl Cous Cous

1 packet of pearl couscous, or Israeli couscous. I use:

Oil for frying
2 cups of chicken stock
1 small brown onion (diced)
2 carrots (chopped)
1/4-1/2 zuchini (chopped)
3-4 button mushrooms (chopped)
small broccoli (chopped)
Frozen peas
Tinned sweet corn
Pesto. I use:

Cooking cream (light). I use:

#1 Dice onions. Add to fry pan and fry for a few minutes.
#2 Add chopped carrots, allow to soften.

#3 Add brocolli, zuchini, peas, corn and mushrooms. Toss and cook for a few minutes.

#4 Stir through (dry) cous cous.
#5 Add 2 cups of chicken stock. Bring to the boil, and simmer for 10 minutes.

This is what the cous cous will look like after that time, when it is ready:

#6 Mix approx 1/4 jar of cooking cream with approx 4 tablespoons of pesto (depends on how creamy / strong you like it) in a separate container. Stir through the cous cous:

And that's it! Easy, delicious and healthy :-)
