This recipe is delicious alongside Rachel Allen’s Mackerel with Parsley, Mint and Anchovy Sauce. It has lots of flavour and the toasted pistachios add a great crunchy texture.
This is another one of the dishes Rachel showed us how to make at the Ecover Eat Clean Feel Good Masterclass. Rachel has partnered with Ecover to encourage people to think carefully about the ingredients they use in both their cooking and clean up. You can find out more here on the Ecover website.
This Pomegranate Lime and Pistachio Couscous would also be wonderful alongside chicken or lamb. Or let it cool, refrigerate and serve as a tasty summer salad.
