This fruity, nutty couscous is prepared using chopped, dried apricots, walnuts and spring onion along with golden, fluffy, whole wheat couscous. A lovely side-dish, you could try mixing this with salads for a nice pop of flavour or serve alongside burgers and wraps for added texture!


Dried Apricot and Walnut Couscous

  • 150g/5oz (dry weight) whole wheat couscous
  • 225ml hot vegetable stock
  • 4 spring onions, finely sliced
  • 40g/1.4oz dried apricot, finely chopped
  • 40g/1.4oz walnuts, chopped
  • The juice of half a lemon
  • 1 tsp of turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp of cumin, to taste
  • Salt and black pepper to taste

Dried Apricot and Walnut Couscous

1.Add the couscous into a shallow dish, pour the stock over and cover. Leave for ten minutes for the grains to absorb the stock.

2. While that’s doing its thing, prep the onions then add them into a mixing bowl along with the apricot and walnuts.

3. Once the couscous has absorbed the stock, fluff it all up with a fork. Once fluffy add it to the mixing bowl.

4.Evenly scatter the turmeric and cumin over the couscous mixture, do the same with the lemon juice before finally seasoning with salt and pepper. Give everything a really good mix to combine and then refrigerate until you’re ready to serve
