Aubergine couscous salad
- Preparation and cooking time
- Serves 2
A handful of mint leaves really brings this salad alive, veggies will love it, but if you do need some meat lamb cutlets are the perfect addition
- STEP 1
Heat grill to high. Put the aubergine on a baking sheet, brush with oil and season. Grill for about 15 mins, turning and brushing with more oil halfway, until browned and softened.
- STEP 2
Meanwhile, tip the couscous into a large bowl, pour over the stock, then cover and leave for 10 mins. Mix the tomatoes, mint, goat’s cheese and remaining oil together. Fluff the couscous up with a fork, then stir in the aubergines, tomato mixture and lemon juice.
MAKE IT WITH CHICKEN
Omit the cheese, tomatoes and aubergines. Cut 2 chicken breasts into thick strips, toss in the oil, then grill for 8-10 mins until cooked through. Allow to cool. Mix into the couscous with flesh from 2 oranges, a chopped 250g pack beetroot and the mint.
