Original post (with pictures) here.

1/2 cup couscous
Juice and pulp of one orange (mine yielded 1/3 cup juice)
1/2 zucchini, chopped
1 small carrot, chopped
1 stick celery, chopped
Handful of almonds

Water, extra, for cooking

1. Add the couscous to a medium saucepan along with the orange pulp. In a measuring cup, top up your orange juice with water to give 1/2 cup of liquid and then add to the couscous. Bring to the boil.
2. When the couscous has reached boiling point, reduce heat to low, add the chopped vegetables, and allow to simmer covered for 1-2 minutes. Turn off heat altogether, stir, and allow to stand covered for an additional 2 minutes.
3. Top with almonds and serve.
