I discover this meal by accident. Not really by accident but by trying something different. One day we had soup and couscous for lunch, and I didn’t want to eat the little amount of couscous we had left by itself so I put my share in my soup and created this awesome meal. A lot of option and variation are possible so by using this basic recipe you can adapt it to make it your own, cooking should be an adventure filled with discovery, emotions and friends.

This meal is best serve with bread of your choice, French bread is a really good option.

As always please try this at home. Very little supervision is require, and to eat. Please enjoy.
