Faux cous cous integral with vegetables

Not always what really appears is. This is the case with this dish of wholemeal cous cous, which, not by chance, I defined mock in the recipe header. Have you ever wanted anything but not available? Well, we wanted a little cous cous but the pantry did not return the product sought… there were, however, the whole spaghetti that kept staring at me sfidandomi and behold, then, that I accepted the provocation. You want to go away from there, I want something different, we reach a right compromise, I frullo you and I get my integral cous cous! Light, fresh, tasty, light, tasty and the more you put it. In order not to lose any nutritional value I have also cooked the cous cous in the vegetation water of the vegetables, notoriously rich in minerals and vitamins and which give a special taste to cous cous. Try to believe!
