Serves 6 as a side dish.
1 cup orange juice
1 cup water
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground coriander
1 10-oz box plain instant couscous
1/2 cup golden raisins

3 Tbsp roughly chopped flat-leaf parsley
3 Tbsp roughly chopped fresh mint or basil (or some of each)
3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper, to taste

In a sauce pan, bring orange juice, water, cinnamon and coriander to a boil. Stir in the couscous, cover the pot, and remove from heat. Let stand, covered, for ten minutes.
In the meantime, combine raisins, tomatoes, preserved lemon, fresh herbs and olive oil in a mixing bowl. Fluff the couscous with a fork, and add to the bowl. Stir to combine, season with salt and pepper, and add the lemon zest. Let cool to room temperature and serve, or refrigerate. Bring to room temperature before serving.
