Ingredients
  • 200g couscous
  • 2tbsp olive oil
  • 400g tin chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • Juice 1 lemon
  • 1 small red onion, finely chopped
  • 2tsp ground cumin
  • 100g Greek-style cheese, crumbled
  • 100g raisins or sultanas
  • 100g dried apricots, chopped
  • 50g Asda Roasted & Salted Mixed Nuts, chopped
  • 10g fresh mint, chopped
Method
  • Put the couscous into a bowl and cover with boiling water (about 300ml). It should come about 1cm over the top of the grains. Cover with a plate or clingfilm and leave for 10 mins until all the liquid has been absorbed.

  • Fluff the couscous with a fork, then add the remaining ingredients (except the mint), mixing well. Season with black pepper. Serve scattered with the chopped mint.
