    • Preparation time: 10 minutes
    • Cooking time: 10 minutes
    • Total time: 20 minutes

    Serves: 4

    Ingredients

    250g essential Waitrose couscous
    1 tsp ground cumin
    2 tbsp Cooks’ Ingredients Sundried Tomato Paste
    1 red onion, chopped
    2 tomatoes, chopped
    1 clove garlic, finely chopped
    25g pack fresh mint, roughly chopped
    1 lemon, juice and finely grated zest
    2 tbsp olive oil
    200g halloumi or kefalotyri cheese, cut into strips
    1 tbsp plain flour 

    Method

    1. Place the couscous in a large bowl and stir in the cumin, sundried tomato paste, onion and tomatoes. Pour over enough boiling water to just cover and set aside.

    2. Meanwhile, combine the garlic and mint, and stir in the lemon zest and juice, and 1 tbsp of the olive oil.

    3. Heat the remaining oil in a large non-stick frying pan. Dust the cheese strips lightly with flour and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side until crusty and golden brown.

    4. Fluff up the couscous with a fork and stir through the cooked cheese and mint dressing. Serve warm.
