    This was so yum. I changed a couple of things. I used chicken stock instead of the boiling water, grated the carrot instead of chopping it, used plain yoghurt instead of the mayo and squeezed on some lemon juice. Everyone commented how much nicer it was than couscous.

    This is always a hit at any barbie or summer party. There's then usually leftovers for lunch afterwards so I have started making this just for lunch - makes such a change from a dull sandwich.
