I haven’t been doing market shopping in the last three weeks, I got a bit carried away today. Luscious pomegranates caught my eye, teamed with scented fresh herbs and couscous. The juice of the pomegranate does turn the couscous slightly pink. It’s a delicious fresh combination for summer. We’ll be having it with lamb chops tonight.
1 1/2 cups couscous, added 3 cups of boiling water and let it soak up the water, fluffed it with a fork and added about 3 tablespoons of olive oil. Then added the pomegranate seeds and about a cup of finely chopped mint and parsley (about 1/3 parsley to 2/3 mint). I finished it with a little lemon juice to taste.
