3 Meanwhile, pit dates and chop coarsely.
4 Toast chopped almonds until golden brown in a small dry non-stick pan.
5 Add dates and almonds to the couscous along with honey, butter, star anise and cinnamon and mix well to combine.
6 Separate the egg (reserve yolk for another use). Whisk white in a small bowl until slightly frothy and brush over edges of the spring roll sheets.
