1 onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 Tbsp each of Alison’s Pantry Sliced Almonds, Sunflower, Sesame & Pumpkin seeds

(Alternatively use Alison’s Pantry Berry Zest)
¼ cup fresh parsley or basil, chopped
Optional extras: cubed carrots, finely chopped celery, chopped sundried tomatoes, diced red capsicum, lemon juice.
Cook onion and garlic in a little olive oil until soft. Add fruit and couscous, cover with heated stock and cook until couscous is al dente, approximately 10 minutes. Remove the lid for a few minutes to reduce all the liquid. Stir in nut and seed mixture and herbs. Season with pepper.
