    HappyBunny's Note:

    This is from the December 2006 edition of Sainsbury's magazine. It is outstanding! The recipe is for 12 servings but I adjusted it to 150g couscous to 250ml of boiling water for two very generous servings. I also used flaked almonds instead of whole blanched almonds. DH said it's the best couscous he's ever had :)

    1. 1
      Halve the pomegranates and pick out the seeds. Divide the couscous between two large mixing bowls and pour 570ml (1 pint) boiling water into each one. Cover with a clean cloth and leave for 10 minutes.
    2. 2
      Meanwhile, melt the butter in a frying pan and add the almonds. Cook them until they are golden, stirring now and then. This will only take a few minutes. Keep an eye on them as they can burn quite easily.
    3. 3
      Season the cousous and fluff with a fork. Divide the buttery almonds, pomegranate seeds and herbs between the bowls of couscous and stir.
