  1. Place the couscous in a small bowl, boil the stock and pour about ¾ of it over the couscous. Leave for 15 minutes then fluff with a fork.
  2. Rinse the sweetcorn and beans under running cold water.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan or wok, add the chilli flakes, a grind of pepper and the chopped spring onions and peppers and stir-fry for a 20 seconds and then add the sweetcorn, pulses and the remaining stock
  4. Bring to the boil, reduce and simmer until the stock has almost disappeared and the vegetables are heated, about 10 minutes.
  5. Add the couscous, mix well and serve hot.


I've used borlotti beans so there is a good colour mix, however almost any canned pulses would be fine. I often open various cans of pulses, rinse them, mix them all up in a huge bowl and freeze in small batches. A mix such as this would be ideal in this dish.
