It's always nice to have a meal that can be shared.
Even if it's just the two of us... There's something to be said for dishing out dinner from a communal bowl or two. As a group, it's easy chitchat. "Can you pass..." or "Grab that for me." The best part, which I think we would all agree is pinching that extra fork-full from your dinner buddy while they're not looking!
|Sharing is Caring with a meal like this!|
1 onions, medium diced

While your meat is cooking away, make your cous cous.
Oil up your pan. Wait till your pan is at medium heat before tossing in your Onions and Red peppers. Cook them down till soft.
Place the peppers & onions in a bowl together with the cous cous. Add in Pine Nuts, and some Sultanas for some extra flavours that will go beautifully with your tagine.
|Equal Quantities (ie.200grams stock = 200grams Couscous)|
Grab a big (or little) bowl. Get your cous cous and meat all happy. Everything comes together in the end! Grab your fork, and distract whoever is sitting next to you. Don't forget to have some of theirs too!
