Sick of boring breakfasts and Breakfast Bores (you know who you are), here is a quick summer bite to change up the morning office routine.
Lately, I have hit total oat fatigue. It doesn’t help that at every social gathering I’m stuck with the Oat Oversharer – you know that person who insists on detailing the minutia of their breakfast regime. Protein oats, savoury porridge, overnight oats… I am over it. Enter the couscous bowl (or jar for a quick breakfast on the go).
You will need:
- 50g couscous
- 25g chopped dried mango
- 1 teaspoon coconut oil
- A good dollop of yoghurt
- 20g pecans, toasted
- A scattering of coconut flakes
- A handful of fresh berries
Place the couscous in a bowl along with the chopped dried mango. Pour in boiling water until the couscous is just covered. Then cover the bowl and allow to stand for 10 minutes.
Once the water has been absorbed, stir in the coconut oil and fluff up the couscous with a fork. Divide between two bowls or jars.
Top with the yoghurt, toasted pecans, coconut, and berries.
