It’s not a typical couscous salad, as it has a sweet flavor thanks to raisins and an orange juice. Very refreshing in the morning and takes only 15 minutes to prepare it.
You will need:
- 200 ml vegetable stock
- 200 ml orange juice
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp ground coriander
- 250g couscous
- 75g raisins
- 2 ripe tomatoes, chopped
- 1/4 preserved lemon, chopped (optional)
- 1/2 bunch of parsley, roughly chopped
- 1/2 bunch of mint, roughly chopped
- 1 garlic clove, crushed
- 4 tbsp olive oil
- salt and pepper
Combine the stock, orange juice, spices and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a saucepan. Bring it to boil, remove from a heat, add couscous and leave for 10 minutes.
In a bowl mix raisins, tomatoes, lemon, herbs, garlic and oil. Stir in the couscous and season with salt and pepper.
Serve warm or in a room temperature.
