    Clementine couscous salad with cinnamon

    • Vegetarian
    • Preparation time: 15 minutes
    • Cooking time: 0 minutes
    • Total time: 15 minutes

    Serves: 4


    200g wholewheat couscous
    350ml hot vegetable stock
    2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
    1 tbsp lemon juice
    4 clementines, peeled
    handful flat leaf parsley, roughly chopped
    6 medjool dates, chopped
    60g shelled pistachios, roughly chopped


    1. Put the couscous in a heatproof bowl and pour over the hot vegetable stock. Cover with a plate and set aside for 5 minutes. Fork through the grains to fluff them up, dousing with the olive oil, cinnamon and lemon juice, forking through again to distribute evenly.

    2. Slice or chop the clementines into bite-sized pieces. Fold into the couscous with the parsley, dates and pistachios; season. Serve topped with salty cheese such as feta or halloumi, if liked, or alongside roast duck or lamb.
