Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Place the couscous in a shallow bowl, then pour over 200ml boiling water. Cover the bowl with cling film, then leave for 5 mins until the couscous has swelled up and absorbed all of the water. Ruffle with a fork to separate the grains, then stir through the pomegranate seeds and herbs.

  • STEP 2

    Make a dressing by mixing together the orange juice, white wine vinegar and olive oil, then stir into the couscous. Season well with salt and serve.

RECIPE TIPS
TIP

Larger supermarkets stock packs of fresh pomegranate seeds, but if you have difficulties finding them, use dried cherries or raisins instead.
