Notes

Serving Suggestion: Couscous. Place ¾ cup (138g) couscous in a medium heatproof bowl. Add ¾ cup (185ml) boiling water. Stir, cover and set aside for 3–5 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Scrape with a fork to separate the grains. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.TIP: Lots of dirt can hide between the layers of a leek. The easiest way to remove it is to slice the leek and then rinse it under cold running water. Drain well before cooking.
