When life gives you limes – make margaritas (or lime couscous)

Hola amigos!

A while back we ordered from Taqado Mexican Kitchen, one of the best decisions of my life. Taco’s, burritos, quesadillas, salads – yum.

Mexican food is a great option for vegans as they tend to have a number of vegan friendly ingredients like beans, veggies, salsas & guacamole. Anyway, they have this amazing lime flavored rice which I fell in love with and re-made a few times when we were having fajita night (these usually result in a food coma lol.)

Always looking for healthy alternatives, I came up with this lime couscous recipe which is delicious. It’s quick/easy to make and is a fab side dish, I had it with my vegan 3 bean chili & it was GOOD. It would be nice in salad too or warm with some roast veggies.

Do you guys know any other quick couscous recipes? Help me out. adiós – Jess xx
