Method

  1. Cook the couscous or bulgur wheat in vegetable stock according to pack instructions. Trim the ends off the courgettes, then cut into slices.

  2. Heat a griddle pan or grill. Drizzle the courgette slices with oil, then season. Cook for 2 mins, then turn over and cook 1-2 mins more until softened and golden brown. Tip into a large bowl along with the cooked couscous or bulgur wheat, then mix through the remaining ingredients. Serve at room temperature.

Really easy and quick to make. Made with yellow pepper instead of courgette and was a lovely side dish. Will make again!

Really easy and very tasty on it's own or along side any meat and salad. The left overs even tasted good for breakfast the next morning! Will be making again and again.

Very tasty, simple side dish. I've made it with roasted peppers too because I'd run out of courgette.
