I made it tonight for the first time having picked up the recipe card in Waitrose. This is a really tasty dinner – I love all the flavours. It’s a delicious main meal but would also be perfect as a side dish. The card also suggested swapping the couscous for quinoa – cook in the stock according to pack instructions (add the juice and zest once cooked). Make it you wont be disappointed 🙂
