Jewelled ‘Couscous’ Salad

If you’re looking for your next weeknight dinner, Look no further. This warm ‘couscous’ salad is for you. This isn’t your traditional bland couscous dish, It’s bursting with amazing flavours and ticks all the boxes for a winter meal when you feel like something light but comforting. I have a low-key crush on middle eastern/ Moroccan food. The dishes have the perfect combination of sweet, spicy and savoury notes that are indulgently comfy but never overly heavy. I’ve combined my favourite ingredients from both cuisines to make this simple but tasty salad. The base is made by swapping out traditional couscous for millet. If you haven’t tried millet before you should immediately add it to your rotation of whole grains. It is a tiny gluten-free grain with a slightly nutty flavour & a fluffy texture once cooked, making it the perfect swap for couscous or bulger.  The fluffy millet ‘couscous’ is layered with sweet dried apricots, cubes of spicy, savoury Za’atar roasted eggplant & sweet potato and juicy cherry tomatoes & pomegranate seeds.

Harissa Roasted Eggplant with Fennel Salad

Eggplant (aubergine) is one of my favourite vegetables, I could seriously eat it every day. It’s the star ingredient of baba ganoush but you’ve most likely sampled it in a rich Indian curry or a savoury tomato pasta. It’s a gem of a vegetable and when cooked well brings so many hearty flavours & textures to a dish. Perfect if you’re going meat-free. This recipe is currently my favourite way to cook eggplant. I marinate the flesh with a warming harissa paste then bake it in the oven until the outside is golden and the flesh turns melt in your mouth tender and serve it alongside a crisp fennel and citrus salad.  It’s  bursting with flavour and much easier to prepare than it looks as the oven does all the hard work.  I make it on days when I feel like I need a break from starchy foods as its a bit of a lighter meal but is still flavourful enough to comfort you on chilly winter nights.
