Have you ever tried sweet couscous? Well, if the answer is no, then go grab some and prepare this delicious fruit bowl, as you will just love it.

Make it all about seasonal fruits, and change the order of things by roasting them. You’ll get an amazing flavour which will make you repeat this over and over for the next weeks..well, that’s what I did after the first time I tried this combination.

There are some small secrets that made this so delicious and I’ll them share with you:

1. Use a few leaves of fresh thyme – will make all the difference – because herbs + fruits = LOVE

2. Add a small splash of balsamic vinegar

3. Enhance all this with a bit of nutmeg and cardamom. These are really my go to spices when I want to bake something or when some fresh fruits are involved. The flavours are definitely unique.

4. There’s no secret for making the couscous sweet, just add a teaspoon of honey when preparing it 🙂
