Ingredients

  • 85g couscous
  • 2 tbsp raisins
  • 50ml hot vegetable stock
  • 1 tsp clear honey
  • 1 lemon, zest and juice
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • small bunch flat-leaf parsley
  • 150ml low-fat natural yogurt
  • 2 tomatoes , roughly chopped
  • 2 red peppers , halved, cores removed
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat oven to 190C/170C fan/gas 5. Put the couscous and raisins in a heatproof bowl. Stir together the stock, honey and lemon juice, then pour over the couscous. Cover and leave to absorb for 5 mins.

  • STEP 2

    Meanwhile, make the gremolata. Place the lemon zest, garlic and parsley in a mini food processor, then whizz until fine (or finely chop everything together). Stir 1 tbsp of this mixture into the yogurt, then set aside. Stir the remaining mixture into the couscous with the tomatoes and some seasoning.

  • STEP 3

    Spoon the couscous mixture into each pepper half, then sit them in a small roasting tin. Drizzle with oil, then bake for 40 mins until the peppers are tender. Serve with the yogurt and a simple green salad on the side.
