|..at least they're oven baked!|
What you need
500gr /17oz Couscous
500gr /17oz Spinach
1 table spoon parmesan cheese
2 stock (or bouillon) cubes
Boil some water and pour it in a bowl over the couscous and 2 stock cubes. The water should cover the cous cous completely (if it is not enough, then you can add it later but remember: if you pour too much water, it won't be absorbed by the couscous). Mix everything together until the cubes have melt and combined with the couscous.
In the meantime, pour some olive oil in a pan and mix cooked spinach with onion and parmesan cheese-- pre-heat the oven at 350F/200C.
Mix the couscous with the spinach and 2 eggs. Now you can start preparing your bites. You can decide how big you want them, mine were big enough and I came up with 20/25 of them. (suggestion: if the mixture is too watery, squeeze the ball in your hands in order to take out the liquid in excess).
Place the spinach and couscous bites in a baking tray and bake them for 15/20 minutes.
I have served my bites with indian style yoghurt - it's very easy to make:
Combine 1 cup of greek yoghurt (light!) with 1 spoon of olive oil, a pinch of salt and chopped mint leaves.
Until next time,
