125 g (5 oz) dried apricots, finely chopped
450 g (1 lb) uncooked couscous
1 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp roughly chopped coriander
100 g (4 oz) spring onions, chopped
1. Place the chopped apricots in a bowl, cover with boiling water and leave to soak for 10 minutes.
2. Meanwhile, place the couscous in a large bowl and add enough boiling water to cover by 6 mm (1/4 inch). Cover tightly with clingfilm and allow to stand for 10 minutes until cooked.
3. Drain the apricots well and add to the couscous, fluffing it up with a fork. Add the remaining ingredients. Mix well and serve immediately.
