This easy 15 minute couscous recipe makes the perfect side dish or salad add-in. With crunchy almond slices and fresh herbs, it's perfect for any meal.


  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small onion finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic finely chopped
  • 60 g flaked almonds
  • 300 g couscous
  • 450 ml vegetable stock
  • 15 g coriander chopped
  • ½ lemon squeezed


  • Heat the olive oil in a saucepan over a medium heat. When the oil is hot, add onion, garlic and almonds. Fry until onions and garlic are softened, and almonds are golden and toasted, about 5 minutes.
  • Add the couscous to the pan, and stir to combine. Pour in the stock. Cover the pan, turn off the heat, and leave for 5 minutes.
  • After 5 minutes, remove the lid. Fluff up the couscous with a fork, then stir through the coriander and juice of half a lemon. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
