Couscous, saffron, orange and pomegranate bring an amazing sweet flavour to your roast chicken or turkey.

Ingredients

1 tsp, a pinch

Orange rind

1 tsp, finely grated

Dry wholemeal couscous

¾ cup(s), (150g)

Pomegranate

80 g, seeds, (80g)

Pistachios

¼ cup(s), kernals, lightly toasted, chopped

Fresh coriander

cup(s), chopped

Egg(s)

1 medium, lightly beaten

Instructions

  1. Combine stock, saffron and orange rind in a medium saucepan over high heat. Bring to the boil. Remove from heat. Stir in couscous and cover with a lid or foil. Set aside for 5 minutes or until the liquid is absorbed. Use a fork to fluff the couscous. Cool for 10 minutes.

Notes

TIPS: Toss nuts in a small non-stick frying pan over medium heat until just golden. 1 quantity will make enough stuffing for 1 x 3.2kg turkey or 2 x 1.6kg chickens.
