Very nice, quick & easy. The couscous (or bulghur) needs standing for 10 minutes, in my opinion, & even 5 extra minutes after adding all the ingredients.

Delicious! Made this last night with a few changes to save on the pennies...I swapped the pine nuts for half a 100g bag of sunflower seeds, dry toasted as per the pine nuts...I also left out the coriander and apricots (I don't like coriander, and apricots are similarly pricey pre pay day!) but it was utterly delicious- and had a portion cold with some chicken for lunch today, was fabulous!!
