Method

  • 01
  • For fragrant couscous, bring stock to the boil in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Place couscous in a bowl with oil, orange juice and spices, and rub with your fingers to combine well. Season to taste, then pour hot stock over, stir with a fork, cover with plastic wrap and stand until couscous has absorbed the liquid (10-15 minutes). Fluff up with a fork, cover again and set aside. Just before serving, add coriander, pine nuts, currants and lemon rind, and stir to combine.
