1.5tbsp Olive Oil
2.5tbsp Fresh Mint
500ml Boiling Water
This is so easy and can be made up to 3 hours in advance and kept at room temperature. Couscous is very welcoming to lots of flavours – parsley, coriander, harissa, chopped pistachios, lemon juice, dried fruits and pomegranates can all be mixed in with abandon, but I think the simpler the better, particularly when on a budget, and simply stirring in a generous handful of mint makes for a fresh, intense flavour – just add lots!
