Method

  1. Measure the couscous into a large heatproof bowl, pour over the hot stock, then cover with cling film. Leave to stand for 5 mins or until the couscous has absorbed the stock and is soft. Add the egg and yogurt and mix well. Season, then fold through the cheese, tomatoes and spring onions.

  2. Divide the mixture into 4 and shape into burgers. Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan, then cook the fritters over a medium heat for 3 mins on each side until golden. Serve with a green salad and a spoonful of your favourite chutney.

Surprisingly good recipe. I didnt think the cous-cous would hold together when fried, but it did.

Easy and quick to make. Lovely with the feta - even convinced my friend who hates couscous to eat one!
