Roast the Veg
Roast the Veg

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.

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.

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.
