  3. Slice the sweet pepper into rings and halve the olives.
  4. Zest the peel of the lemon. Squeeze the juice. Put the pearl couscous, Bimi®, mini corn, sweet pepper, olives and lemon zest into a bowl. Press the garlic and add, drizzle with the olive oil and season with salt and pepper and lemon juice.

Tip: Also tastes amazing with crumbled or diced feta. The dish is no longer vegan.
