Freelicious Corn Couscous - Review & {Giveaway}

Winter is just around the corner.  We've had but a taste of it so far and with it brings fabulous winter dishes.  Break out your slow cookers people - I'm talking warm the cockles of your heart type stuff here.  Hearty casseroles, steaming hot soups, mouth watering roasts with all the delicious trimmings.  I'm a big fan of this kind of nurturing comfort food aren't you?   Here's my personal favourite.. slow cooked lamb shanks (my recipe here) mmm.. where the meat is literally falling off the bone and just melts in your mouth mmm.. and what better way to compliment a plate of shanks than with a side of delicious buttery couscous!  Alas the regular variety is off limits to a Coeliac or gluten intolerant person.  Bummer.

Wait just a minute! Hold up there..  Have you not heard about CORN couscous?  NO?  Where have you been? Where have I been?  Where have they been hiding this stuff?

Buttery and light.  Freelicious Corn Couscous is gluten free, simple to prepare and delicious.  As easy as cooking rice and ready in under 10 minutes - you gotta love that!

You can prepare your corn couscous with water or gluten free stock, serve as a side or a meal in it's own right.

Corn couscous lends itself well to various flavour combinations - It's as easy as adding a few tasty ingredients like I have here -

A handful of sliced spring onion, a generous amount of gently toasted whole Aussie Macadamias,  or flaked almonds work well too (you already know I'm a Macadamia freak) and some pan fried gluten free chorizo and you're in business.
Oh yeah now you're talking.
