Fibro Recipe

Serves 2 / 30 minutes preparation (inc. 10-12 min to steam the courgettes) / Delicious and very Easy to do

. 4 medium sized round courgettes
. 125g of spelt couscous (or couscous)
. 40-50g of fresh feta
. 1 tablespoon of olive oil
. pinch of salt
Fibro Recipe
Cut the head of the courgettes and empty them with a teaspoon. Steam the courgettes first, for 10-12 minutes (don't overcook the courgettes or they'll break when you fill them). Meanwhile, cook the spelt couscous or couscous, as per the instructions - usually, boil as much water as you will use couscous (125 ml), and once warm, switch the cooker off and add the couscous, making sure the water covers the grain and leave it there for 5 minutes, with a closed lid. Afterwards, add the olive oil, salt and feta. 
Top tip: to break the feta into crumbs, hold the piece under cold water and then use your hands to crush the feta.
When your courgettes are ready, fill them with the prepared couscous and put everything into the oven for 5-10 minutes, 180° (or 220° depending on your oven).

  • My partner bought me two products for Christmas- best presents I’ve ever received!!!!!

    I’ve suffered with fibromyalgia for over 13 years and the pillow has been amazing for tension in my neck, especially when it’s causing another headache!!!!. So great to be able to use a natural remedy rather than taking more medication. I’d highly recommend any follow suffering person to try the products.
