A delicious accompanyment to many dishes. It’s great with fish or anything that’s been slow cooked in the tagine. Also great alongside BBQ stuff.
1 cup couscous
5 medium radishes (diced)
1/2 small onion (diced)
1 small lebanese cucumber (peeled & diced)
2 tomatoes (seeded & diced)
1 pomegranate (seeds only – optional)
2 tablespoons fresh flat-leaf parsley (finely chopped)
1 tablespoon fresh coriander (finely chopped)
1 teaspoon cumin powder
1/2 teaspoon coriander powder
2 teaspoons sumac
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
juice and zest of 1/2 lemon
salt & pepper
Put the couscous into a bowl and cover with 1 cup of hot water. Cover and leave for 10 minutes until all the water is absorbed. Break up with a fork and leave to completely cool. Meanwhile chop all the vegetables and when the couscous is ready, combine all the other ingredients well. Cover and leave for at least an hour at room temperature for the flavours to develop.
