Cold cous cous salad
With the summer nights approaching, this salad would be perfect on its own or served with chicken.

1 red pepper, finely sliced

1 green pepper, roughly chopped

1 onion, minced

1 garlic clove, chopped

6 cherry tomatoes, halved

Half carrot, finely sliced

2 tbsp olive oil

100g cous cous

250ml vegetable stock

1 avocado, cut

Walnuts (optional)

Heat the oven to 200°C or gas mark 6. Line a baking tray with parchment paper.

Toss the peppers, onions, garlic, tomatoes and carrots together with 1 tbsp of the olive oil. Place in the oven for 15 minutes until soft.

While the vegetables are roasting, heat the cous cous in a small pan with the rest of the oil. Gently pour in the stock and cook for about 20 minutes or until the stock is fully absorbed. Remove and spoon into a large serving bowl.

When the vegetables are done, pour on top of the cous cous and top with the chopped avocado and walnuts if using.

Leave to cool before serving.
