Light and tasty Hawaiian Style Couscous
When ordering a pizza (which is a pretty rare occurrence nowadays), my favourite is Hawaiian. I think it is because I love that sweet and savoury combination. So when cooking up some couscous and looking at what I could add to it, Hawaiian style Couscous seemed like a fabulous idea, and it totally was.
The best thing about this too, is it is great for the whole family, my kids loved it. I even put some in their lunch boxes the next day and they brought them back completely cleared.
If you have a picnic or day out planned, this is a great dish to make up, it is so quick to put together, because couscous literally needs no cooking, just 5 mins in hot water or stock and it's done.
The the savoury ham, sweet pineapple and lightly sauteed veggies all mixed together make this perfect.
This recipe is also dairy free, although if you want to add some cheese to this too, it would be even more delicious.
