This nutty couscous recipe makes a delicious side dish for a rich tagine or to serve with spiced meats and veg.

  1. Place the couscous in a bowl. Pour over the hot stock and oil. Cover with clingfilm and stand for 10 mins. Put a large dry saucepan over a very low heat and add the flaked almonds and pine nuts. Stir constantly until they begin to colour, being careful not to let them burn.
  2. This should take about 8-10 mins. Fluff up the couscous with a fork, then thoroughly mix in the harissa, toasted nuts and the remaining ingredients. Season, then serve warm or allow to cool.
