The flavours in this are lovely, but I couldn’t get over the weirdness of eating cous cous for breakfast. I’d rather replace the cous cous with granola!

Absolutely delicious, summery dish. Quite large portion sizes but I did less couscous and I enjoyed every bit of it! Who would've thought that couscous would be so nice for breakfast??!

The serving of couscous is very generous. I would serve half the amount. The flavour is absolutely delicious!
