  1. Didn't have any arugula or onion on hand, but still tasted very good. Served as a side for Asian-Style Grilled Tilapia (Recipe #192282).
  2. A nice combination of flavours that made a tasty lunch - I didn't have any rocket though and I halved the amount of couscous. Thanks!
  3. So good. I love it with the hummus. I cut everything down to 2 servings except for the veggies. Made a great lunch.
  4. Wow this was the BEST couscous I've ever had. The hummus absolutely makes the dish too. The only thing I did differently was omit the rocket after I discovered a dead grasshopper in the middle of my bunch (EWWW). I'll add it next time though, assuming no more insects are present lol. Thanks so much! Served with recipe #335368.
  5. Give this a try. Really. My wife is not a fish fan, and she liked it.


  1. What an awesome lunch! I used tuna with tomatoes and onions, rather than plain, and I subbed spinach for the rocket. This is great because it uses ingredients we always have on hand. I halved the recipe, and that still made 4 servings for us. Definite keeper!! Thanks Mandy!


Melbourne I live on a 5 acre property in the Dandenong Ranges Victoria, Australia, having moved from the burbs when I became pregnant with my now 15 year old daughter Alyssa. Once my daughter was born I became a stay at home mum as I couldn't bear the thought of putting her in daycare. She is the light of my life, I never imagined myself as a mum when younger but now wouldn't have it any other way. Alyssa was made a big sister on the 19th April 2010 when our cheeky little boy Blake was born. I love cooking and experimenting with new recipes so quickly become addicted to Zaar as it was previously known & still use it regularly. In addition to being my kids taxi :lol: I also spend my time, reading, gardening and of course shopping. I'm lucky enough that we have the space & so love growing our own fruits, vegies & herbs, this also means we have plenty of room for animals & at the moment have 2 dogs, Max, a Jackshund who's 6, Fletcher, a Kelpie who's 4, 6 cats Snowpea, Fergus, Ginger, Tango, Annie & Cookie, 4 chooks & 2 Ducks. As well as our pets, we also have a lot of native animals around our area, we have kangaroos, wombats, echidna's, possums as well as rosella's, galah's & Cockatoo's hence the name of where I live..
