  • 3 Cups Couscous
  • 1 Cup Craisins
  • 3 Cups Boiling Hot Water
  • Chopped Coriander


  1. Place the couscous and craisins in a bowl.

  2. Pour hot water over the mix and cover the bowl with a plate to allow the steam to cook the couscous.

  3. After 5 minutes, fluff the couscous with a fork to separate the grains.

  4. Serve and garnish with the chopped coriander and enjoy!


This craisin couscous is so much simpler than it looks! It’s the perfect compliment to many stews and sauces but especially for my lamb tagine.

The good thing is, it’s almost impossible for you to mess up but even better than that, it’ll make you look like a pro in front of your guests! Best part is, it’s better for you than rice so if you need a healthier alternative then you can try this. 

The craisins in there add a sweet kick which works a treat for me. It has a nicer flavour than raisins and you can find it in most supermarkets.
