Couscous is such a great alternative side dish to the usual pasta/rice/potatoes. This recipe for Spicy Casablanca Couscous comes from Ainsley Harriott’s Low Fat Meals in Minutes. I discovered it last year when I was looking for lower-calorie recipes, and it works so well that it’s become a regular feature on the weekly menu. The cumin and coriander work really well together and you can dial the hotness up or down by adjusting the amount of chillies you use. (You could obviously substitute dried chillies or cayenne, or omit them altogether.)

This recipe for lemon, garlic and coriander chicken is the first of a few healthy recipes that I’ll be sharing from Ainsley Harriott’s Low Fat Meals in Minutes. The recipe uses ground coriander as well as a small amount of fresh coriander (aka cilantro), but they are both easily substituted with spices/herbs of your choice. 🙂 The lemon chicken is really delicious, and according to the book works out at just 195 calories a portion (plus whatever you decide to serve it with). Good for all of you trying to eat healthily, it’s low-calorie and low-fat because the chicken is marinated mostly in lemon juice.
