Boil some water. Put the couscous in a bowl, and add the cinnamon and nutmeg. Pour enough boiling water over to cover by about half an inch. Cover with a plate or pot lid, that's bigger than the bowl to seal in the steam.
Meanwhile, quarter, core, and chop the apple. Heat a small pan to medium heat. Core and chop the apple. Add a small amount of water to the pan, and the apples. Let them heat until softened to your liking, about 10 minutes. Sprinkle with cinnamon, nutmeg, and sugar and toss to coat. If the sugar is sticking to the pan, add another small splash of water to release. Remove the pan from the heat, and drizzle the apples with freshly squeezed lemon juice (if using).
Uncover the couscous, fluff with a spoon, adding maple syrup or unrefined sugar if you like, or some non-dairy milk. Top with the apples, cherries, and pumpkin seeds - or whatever you want!
