Serves 4

  • 160g couscous
  • 160g boiling water

  • 2 spring onions, finely sliced
  • 2 tsp spices (I used @greensaffronspice Bombay Potatoes mix)
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 medjool date, finely diced
  • 2 carrots, grated
  • 1 handful coriander or parsley, chopped
  • 100g toasted mixed seeds


  1. Pour the boiling water over the couscous in a small bowl and cover with a plate. Set aside for
  2. five minutes then fluff with a fork.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a pan then add the spring onion, after a minute add the spices and turn off
  4. the heat. Leave to sizzle and warm though. Add the dates and lime juice and mix well.
  5. Pour the dressing over the couscous and mix well.
  6. Add the carrot, seeds and herbs.
  7. Stir to mix and serve right away. If prepping this ahead then store the salad in the fridge and add the seeds just before serving.
