Sweet potato couscous

Sweet potato couscous

Broccoli, sweet potatoes and corn are the heroes but you could easily add pomegranate, chick peas and spices like cumin, coriander & cinnamon to take this dish to the next level. Combine fluffy couscous with steamed broccoli, corn and baked sweet potato. Top with toasted pine nuts and a zesty oil and lemon dressing for a knock-out, hearty vegetable salad.
