This is the perfect dish to bridge the gap between summer salads and winter stews. A warming couscous salad is perfect for lunch and dinner. Giant couscous is easy to cook and takes on flavour really well, it’s becoming a firm favourite in our house.
This is one of those dishes which I so versatile I think providing a recipe is counter-productive, instead pick your favourite veggies, balance the colours and include a source of protein. Experiment away and let me know if you come up with an awesome combination!
To make this salad, cook giant couscous according to the instructions and add in a variety of brightly coloured vegetables such as:
- Finely chopped peppers
- Aubergine chunks
- Red onion
- Chopped cucumber
- Sun-dried tomatoes
Stir in tomato puree, vegan pesto, chopped fresh basil and black pepper to finish!
