Steamed Beetroot with Cous-Cous

I recently discovered the wonders of steaming; it's a really healthy and interesting way to get wonderful flavoursome vegetables. This is a quick and easy dish which tastes fantastic.


  • 2 green peppers, cut into 16ths

  • 1 cauliflower, cut into florets

  • 4 beetroots, cut into couple of cm cubes

  • 10g butter

  • 300g cous-cous

  • 600ml vegetable stock, boiling


  1. Place the peppers, cauliflower and beetroot into a steamer and steam for 30 minutes once it's got up to temperature.

  2. Mix the butter, cous-cous and stock together.

  3. Wait for 5 minutes while the cous-cous cooks in the warm stock. Once it's cooked stir it with a fork to fluff it up.

  4. Serve with freshly milled black pepper as soon as the vegetables are steamed.

Serves 3.
