This lesson focuses on the use of lamb mince to prepare a fruity couscous filling for stuffed peppers. Alternative starchy carbohydrates will also be considered as part of a healthy balanced diet. The first activity challenges the pupils to research a range of starchy carbohydrates, their origin and culinary uses, the second investigates the science behind cooking starchy carbohydrates.  Both resources can be used to support the lesson, as homework or self-study.
