Method

  1. Cook the falafels according to pack instructions and boil the kettle. Tip the couscous into a large bowl, pour over 325ml boiling water, cover, then leave to stand for 5 mins until all of the water is absorbed.
  2. Fluff up the couscous with a fork, then stir through the lemon zest, juice from 1½ lemons, olive oil, spring onions, cucumber, mint and three-quarters of the parsley with plenty of seasoning. Tip onto a large platter.
  3. Mix the remaining lemon juice and parsley into the yogurt, then spoon into a small bowl. Scatter the hot falafel over the couscous salad, then serve the yogurt sauce alongside.

I add thinly sliced celery and radishes to this dish to increase the "crunch" factor and agree that you need plenty of yoghurt dressing to go with it. I used half-fat creme fraiche once when I had no yoghurt and it worked well too.

Loved this as a quick throw together supper after a busy day. Make sure you have a lot of the yoghurt though as it could be quite dry otherwise.

Loved the fresh lemony taste. Served on a bed of spinach to increase the veg count.

Not too bad.... quite refreshing but the lemon flavour was quite overpowering!
