1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves

1 egg

1 1/2 teaspoons ground coriander

1 lemon, zested

3/4 teaspoon kosher salt

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

In a medium bowl, mix together the couscous, cilantro, egg, egg yolk, coriander, lemon zest, salt and pepper. Sprinkle the flour over the mixture. Mix until combined.
