Serves 4-6 – Time 15 minutes

250g Couscous
1 Pomegranate
1 Vegetable Stock Cube
1 Handful of Parsley
1 Handful of Coriander
3 Spring Onions
130g Feta
½ Lemon


In a large bowl, dissolve the stock cube into 500ml of boiling water. Add the couscous, stir once and cover with a tea towel. Leave for 5 minutes or until all the moisture has been absorbed and the couscous is light and fluffy.

Finely chop the parsley, coriander and spring onions and add to the couscous. Roughly chop the feta and add it the couscous along with the pomegranate seeds.

Add the juice of half a lemon and mix well.

TIP: To de-seed the pomegranate, roll it on a hard surface to loosen the seeds then half it. Holding the cut side face down in your palm, hit the back with a heavy spoon until all of the seeds fall out.
