My LBL food breakdown: Meal 1 ‘Sausage and onion couscous with chapati’

March 13, 2012

I’ve already shared with you a break down of one of my days of doing Live Below The Line. I want to share with you some of the other meals I was able to russell up. But instead of doing a day by day break down of food, which could get a little repetative telling you about the porridge I ate every morning. Instead thought it best to share just some of the meals I have over the last 5 days.

Meal 1: Sausage and onion couscous,w ith 2 chapatis (most of which I ate before remembering to take a photo!)

Sausage and onion cousous:

100g couscous = 14p

1/2 onion = 5p

1 sasuage = 8p


100g flour (50g per chapati) = 6p

Pinch of salt = 1p

Tap water = FREE 🙂

As simple and basic as this meal looks it was rather flavoursome. The reason? The sausage! Sausages are naturally fatty and salty. This is great for a number of reasons. The fat that you get from the sausage means you have no need for butter or oil to greese the pan. This was great to fry the oinions in, which soaked up all the flavour of the sausages.

Once you have fried the sausages and onions DO NOT CLEAN THE PAN! The pan if full of the salty flavour from the sausages and onions. Instead, add 120ml of water to the pan and use this as your stock for couscous. Add a pinch of salt for extra seasoning if needed.

I am so grateful for all the support everyone has given me while I’ve been Living Below The Line. I still have a long way to go to reach my target. So please keep up the support and help me raise £500 for such a worthwhile cause :)
