Heat a splash of oil in a large frying pan on medium high heat. Slice open the sausage, remove the meat and discard the skin. Shape your sausage meat into balls about 2cm in diameter. Add them to your frying pan and cook until browned, 10-12 mins. Turn them regularly to make sure they don't burn.


Halve, then remove the core from the pepper and thinly slice. Chop each dried apricot into four pieces. Drain and rinse the chickpeas in a sieve. Pick the mint leaves from their stalks and roughly chop(discard the stalks).


Add the pepper to the meatballs. Cook until soft. 5-7 mins. Stir in the ras-el-hanout and dried apricots, cook for 1 minute and then pour in the tomato passata. Add the water (amount specified in ingredient list), chickpeas, half the stock powder and stir to dissolve. Bring to the boil, turn the heat to medium low and simmer the sauce until thick and reduced by half, 12-15 mins.


Pour the water (see ingredients for amount) into a large saucepan and bring to the boil. When boiling, stir in the remaining stock powder and the couscous, pop a lid on the pan and remove from the heat. Leave to the side for 8-10 mins or until ready to serve. The couscous will cook and absorb the stock while you get everything else done.


When your stew is ready, taste and add salt and pepper if necessary. IMPORTANT: The meatballs are cooked when they are no longer pink in the middle. Stir in the baby spinach and cook until wilted, 3-4 mins.


Fluff up the couscous with a fork and mix through the mint and half the flaked almonds. Add a squeeze of lemon juice to taste. Spoon the couscous into bowls and top with your sausage stew. Finish with the remaining flaked almonds. Enjoy!
