Serves 4-6



Couscous is my favourite go-to carb. It's so quick to make and generates no washing up at all if you make it straight into the bowl you're going to serve it up in. A touch of turmeric gives it the classic paella colour and I personally think that the yoghurt on the side is the genius touch that a traditional paella is missing! Add prawns and veg and HOLA! you have a happy Spanish classic made up in minutes!
