Couscous is North and East Africa's answer to rice, and is grits made from durum wheat semolina. It is often used as a side dish for stews, tagines and other dinner dishes. You can cook it according to the instructions on the package and serve, but I think it tastes good to make a little extra out of it. The recipe is suitable for 4 people.

2 spring onions finely chopped
1/2 cucumber, diced
50 g raisins
1 handful fresh mint, finely chopped
