Boil the diced potatoes for 8-10 minutes in a pot.

While the potatoes are cooking, in a pan ‘toast’ the couscous for a few minutes to slightly brown, then put aside in a bowl. Fry onions, garlic and spice mix in a little oil in the same pan for a few minutes.

Drain the potatoes and add these to the pan along with the couscous and combine so the spices mix over everything. Add olives, raisins, dates, cherry tomatoes, herbs and combine.
