Apricot & Feta Couscous

Happy weekend you lovely people! It’s a beautiful day, a fantastic time to be out and enjoy the glorious weather. This weeks recipe is just what you need for a light and refreshing meal or even side dish, full of flavour and perfect if you are going for a picnic or having some friends over for lunch in the garden.

Serves 2

Ingredients:

  • 100g couscous
  • 100ml boiling water
  • 70g dried soft apricots, cut into small pieces
  • 100g feta cheese, cut into small chunks
  • 2 tbsp seed mix (the one I used included: sunflower, pumpkin, hemp seeds and golden linseed)
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • Crushed black pepper

Method:

  1. Start by placing the couscous in a heatproof bowl. Pour in the boiling water, cover with cling film and leave for 5-10 minutes.
  2. In the meantime make the dressing by mixing the olive oil, maple syrup and lemon together in a another bowl.
  3. Fluff the couscous with a fork (and move to the dish or bowl you desire), add the apricots, feta and seeds and season with crushed black pepper.
  4. Drizzle over the dressing and give it a good mix.

Enjoy 🙂
