1

Preheat your oven to 200°C. Fill and boil your kettle, we'll use it later for the couscous. Trim the carrot, then halve lengthways (no need to peel). Slice widthways. Halve, peel and quarter the onion. Pop them on a lined baking tray, drizzle over a splash of oil, half the chermoula spice and a pinch of salt. Rub the flavours over the veggies, then roast on the top shelf of your oven until golden, 18-20 minutes. Turn halfway through cooking.

2

Zest the lemon and place in a large mixing bowl along with the couscous, stock powder, remaining chermoula spice, salt and pepper. Pour the boiling water (see ingredients for amount) into the bowl and stir well to dissolve the stock powder, cover tightly with clingfilm (or a plate) and leave to the side for 10 mins or until ready to use.

3

Meanwhile, roughly chop the coriander (stalks and all). Combine half the coriander with the oil (see ingredients for amount), the juice from half the lemon, the sugar (see ingredients for amount), salt and pepper. Stir well and set aside. Drain and thickly slice the halloumi into 3 slices per person.

4

When you have removed the veggies from the oven, place a large frying pan over medium-high heat (no oil). Once hot, fry the halloumi on each side until golden brown, around 3-4 mins. Remove from the pan and set aside.

5

Uncover the couscous and fluff it up with a fork. Mix in the rocket, remaining coriander, half the raisins and the rest of the lemon juice. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Recover and set to one side.

6

Finally, add the roasted vegetables to the couscous and stir gently to combine. Serve the spiced couscous on plates, with the sliced halloumi on top . Drizzle over the coriander and lemon dressing. Finish with a sprinkling of the remaining raisins. Enjoy!
