Couscous with Sundried Tomatoes, Roasted Pepper and Fresh Basil

500g couscous
1 small onion (chopped finely)
2 tbs olive oil
handful fresh basil leaves
generous handful of dry sundried tomatoes (soaked overnight or couple of hours before in hot boiled water)
some more olive oil

Burn pepper over fire, place in a plastic bag for about 15 minutes, rub over cold water to remove most, but not all of the burned skin, deseed and chop the pepper.

Onions fry on oil until golden brown, add also couscous and wait until everything is hot. Add gradually water, stirring constantly. When couscous is soft, remove from fire, add spring onions, roasted peppers, chopped sundried tomatoes, basil and some more olive oil if couscous is too dry.
