Fruity Couscous Recipe

I really love a fruity couscous because it’s packed with so much vitamins and fibre (really a good way to eat more fruits!) and it’s just so quick and easy to make. The myriad of colours, textures and flavours just makes eating couscous so much more exciting. I must say, this isn’t so much of a ‘recipe’ because I merely toss in whatever fruits I have in the fridge. Normally, I will only eat fruits after dinner but I just thought, why not add them into the couscous and turn it into a fruity salad? I served it as a main, shared between the husband and I, with mesclun salad, cherry tomatoes and oven roasted chicken. If you’re having this fruity couscous as a side, then the recipe is good for 3-4 persons. Anyway, it’s easy to just bulk it up with more fruits if you think the portion is not enough. Cheers to healthy eating and good health!

Fruity Couscous Recipe

Fruit Couscous Salad

Ingredients (serves 2 as main)
200g couscous
250ml hot vegetable broth (or water)
juice from 1 lemon
sea salt & freshly ground black pepper to taste
assorted fruits, sliced to your preferred size (I used 1 peach, 1 kiwi, 1 guava, 1 dragonfruit, 1/2 pomegranate & handful of seedless grapes)

1. Place couscous in a large mixing bowl and pour the hot broth over it. Let stand for 2-3 minutes or till all liquid has been completely absorbed. Fluff up the couscous with a fork.
2. Add the fruits to the couscous. Drizzle lemon juice all over and toss thoroughly with 2 spoons. Season with salt and pepper if desired.
