Ingredients for pumpkin and sweet potato couscous (4 persons)
800 gram of sweet potato cut in thin slices (3 mm)
1 kilogram of organic orange pumpkin, cut in slices like 5 mm (if it’s organic you don’t have to get off the peel!)ingr coucous pumpkin
200 gram of carrot sliced in pieces of 3 mm
375 millilitre of oatcuisine

5 teaspoons of curry powder (I used madras)
2-3 tablespoons of olive oil (extra virgin)

240 gram of whole-wheat couscous
5-6 sun-dried tomatoes
handful of fresh mintleaves
1-2 tablespoon of walnut-oil
2 hands of crushed walnuts
Celtic seasalt to taste

Kitchentools
2 baking dishes
plates
a knife
a cutting board
a bowl and little bowl
a whisker
kettle for cooking water

Let the drooling begin….

First we make the oven dish, because this will take 45 minutes (in oven) to be ready. So cut all the ingredients like carrot, pumpkin and sweet potato. Grease the baking dishes with some olive oil. When this is done put in all the sliced vegetables (carrot, pupkin and sweet potato) mix it a little by hand. Time to get a little bowl and poor in the oat cuisine and the curry powder and some pepper to taste, mix well. This mixture you poor over the vegetables and by hand I mixed the vegetables with the sauce!
Put the oven on on 180 degrees Celsius and shove in the baking dishes, lets stand there for 45 minutes (It must be al soft, then it’s delicious and ready)

In the meanwhile prepare the couscous, boil some water in the water kettle. Weight the coucous and put into the bowl.
Cut the sun-dried tomatoes in tiny pieces. When the water is boiling you poor the boiled water on top of the couscous, I don’t know how much water I used, but let say the couscous must be under the water and the water must be like 3 centimetres higher as the couscous. Set aside, get ready to crunch the walnuts and cut the mint-leaves. When the couscous is cooled down poor in the walnut oil, salt, mint-leaves and walnuts.

By now the oven dish must be ready also. Get the plates and make an real painting of the plate with the nice smelling vegetables and great looking couscous. Enjoy this meal and you can always change the vegetables, maybe more carrots then pumpkin or almonds instead of walnuts. Be creative
