This dish is a riot of colour and flavour with bouncy pearls of giant cous cous as a backdrop and currants, preserved lemon, and flaked almonds as highlights. We've adapted this Ottolenghi recipe so that it works in the freezer - you'll just need to add a handful of herbs or leaves (e.g coriander, parsley, spring onions, baby spinach) to complete it as a salad. It works just as well as a warm side dish without the herbs. 
Pearl cous, chilli, preserved lemon, currants, flaked almonds, salt, garlic, extra virgin olive oil, lemon juice.

Serve as a salad with herbs and salad leaves of your choice or warmed as a side dish - or add grilled halloumi or feta along with herbs and salad leaves to make a more substantial vegetarian dish.

 

 

To serve as a salad, defrost fully before adding the nuts. Toss through with your choice of chopped herbs and baby salad leaves (eg coriander, parsley, spring onions, baby spinach) before serving.

Can also be served as a warm side dish.
