Can anyone give me the recipe(or a similar recipe)for the morocan couscous from the salad bar at waitrose (UK)



Serves: 6


1 cucumber
250g couscous
7 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1tsp sea salt
80g flat leaf parsley, chopped


De-seed and chop the cucumber. Toss it in some salt and leave to one side for 30 minutes. Then soak in a bowl of fresh water for 5 minutes; repeat this with a further 5 changes of water until all excess salt is removed. Drain and set to one side.

Mix the couscous, 5 tbsp oil and salt. Rehydrate the couscous according to the instructions on its packet. Alternatively, you can just place it in a bowl, pour over some boiling water to cover, then let it sit under a plate until the water's absorbed, finally fluffing it up with a fork. Stir in the cucumber and parsley and add the remaining 2 tbsp olive oil.
