How We Make It

This dish is a flavourful salad 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.


Cooked pearl cous cous (67%) (cous cous (wheat), water), preserved lemons (lemon, salt, lemon juice, spices), currants, almonds, chilli. Dressing (olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt).


Does contain: almond, gluten, wheat

May contain traces of: crustaceans, eggs, fish, lupin, milk, molluscs, peanuts, sesame, soy, sulphites, tree nuts

Goes With...

Serve warm with Persian lamb or any grilled protein.
For a more substantial vegetarian dish, add grilled halloumi or feta along with herbs and salad leaves.

    So easy to pair with lamb or salmon but sometimes we eat it on its own it’s so delicious

    Absolutely loved this one, so easy to throw with some spinach to make a lovely salad. The flavour was so great.

    It's great as a side but also can be a base for the main.
