Had roast pork this weekend? This dish works equally well served with pieces of pork too


  1. Put the couscous in a bowl and pour over 200ml boiling water. Cover the bowl with clingfilm, leave for 10 minutes, until the couscous has absorbed all of the water. Ruffle with a fork, then stir through the pomegranate seed and herbs.
  2. Stir in the pine nuts and lemon juice. Season with salad leaves.
