5 spoons of bouillon powder / 5 crumbled stock cubes
The seasoning can be adjusted according to taste - try using other herbs and spices. Smoked paprika is good!
How to make the couscous mix:
Mix all the ingredients together, then transfer to a container for storage - I used a giant saucepan to mix them in and then transferred the mix into tupperware containers.
There’s a lot of mixture, so if your arms tire easily, it’s best to do this on a day when you have plenty of spoons. Or reduce the quantities so it needs less energy to mix.
How to prepare the couscous:
When you’re ready to eat, scoop half a cup of couscous mix into a mug or bowl. Add enough boiling water to cover the couscous completely. Wait a few minutes for the water to be absorbed.
Downside: it is quite a big financial outlay when you make a batch Upside: once you’ve made a batch, it’ll last a long time
I made my current batch in April, I’m about half-way through now, and it cost just over £15 (including P&P for the dried vegetables). It would have cost me about £28 in couscous packets for the same length of time, and I’ve still got loads left!
