This Moroccan Spiced Cous Cous recipe is a great vegetarian meal and ideal for meal prep. It's filling, super healthy and so colourful and easy to throw all the ingredients together!

Ingredients

  • 1 large aubergine (£0.67)
  • 1 pomegranate (£0.99)
  • 100 g feta (£0.75)
  • 500 g wholegrain couscous (£0.99)
  • 5 fresh peppers (£0.95)
  • 1 red onion (£0.67/3)=(£0.22)
  • Bunch of fresh mint (£0.48)

Cupboard Essentials

  • 2 tsp cumin
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp all spice
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt & Pepper

Method

Preheat oven to 180°C

  • Roughly chop the peppers, onion and aubergine and place on a large baking tray. Drizzle on some olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Pop in the oven for 40 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, slice the top of the pomegranate off to reveal the segments. Slice along the segments so you get wedge-like pieces and then use your hands to remove the seeds. (This took me a while and I looked like I had been attacked afterwards, pom juice everywhere).
  • Roughly chop the mint and using the back of a fork, break up the feta.
  • When the veg is 6 minutes away from being cooked, combine the cous cous, stock (see cous cous packet instructions for quantity) and add seasoning in a bowl.
  • After 40 minutes the veg will be roasted and you can combine all of the ingredients.

Can be eaten hot or cold.
