This recipe is called Harissa couscous on the BBC website but I didn't want the Moroccan Lamb I had made to compete with the couscous so I made up my own..


1 x 400g packet of couscous
2 or 3 spring onions finally chopped
3 tbsp of mint - rolled into cigar and finally chopped
250g of cherry tomatoes - halved
400ml of lamb/ veggie or chicken stock - depending on preference
3 tbsp olive oil
1 lemon


1. In a heatproof container (with a lid) place the couscous, spring onion, cherry tomatoes in and pour over hot stock. Cover and leave for 5 minutes.

2. USING A FORK fluff up the couscous and add chopped mint, olive oil and squeeze over the lemon juice.

3. Serve and enjoy!

Taste: 4/5
Presentation: 4/5
Inspiration: BBC

PS. This would also be delicious in the summer with fresh fish, citrus chicken or barbecued steaks.

Love, Maz
