Couscous with Peas and Peanuts is a quick and easy side dish hinted with curry and speckled with peas and peanuts. You’ll love it for its simplicity but will make it again because of the flavour.  The peanuts add just the right amount of crunch and the peas and cilantro make it fresh and bright.

You can never really have enough good side dishes in your arsenal and a little variety helps make dinner more exciting.  So let the plain rice stay in the shadows and put a little something different on the table.  Great with grilled or pan fried meats and a lovely use of fresh peas if you’re lucky enough to have them.
