    Charred aubergine & harissa couscous with feta

    • Preparation time: 5 minutes
    • Cooking time: 20 minutes
    • Total time: 25 minutes

    Serves: 2


    1 tbsp olive oil
    2 tsp clear honey
    2 tbsp Cooks’ Ingredients Ruby Rose Harissa
    1 tbsp red wine vinegar, plus 1 tsp
    1 aubergine, cut into large bitesize pieces
    1 red onion, halved and sliced
    100g couscous
    25g currants or raisins
    ½ x 160g pack Waitrose Beetroot Salad
    50g essential Waitrose Greek Light Salad Cheese, crumbled


    1. Preheat the grill to high. Whisk together the oil, honey, harissa and 1 tbsp vinegar to make a marinade, then season. Toss the aubergine and onion with 2 tbsp of marinade on a baking tray, then spread out. Grill for 15-20 minutes, turning once, until the aubergine is tender and starting to char.

    2. While you wait, put the couscous and dried fruit into a large bowl, season, then stir in 200ml just-boiled water. Cover and leave for 10 minutes. Add 1 tsp vinegar to the remaining marinade to make a dressing.

    3. Fluff up the couscous, then toss with 2 tbsp dressing, the beetroot salad, aubergine, onion and most of the cheese. Drizzle with the rest of the dressing and top with the remaining cheese to serve.

    Cook’s tip Fancy something different? This salad is also delicious with figs in place of the aubergine and dried fruit. Or add some cooked chicken or lamb for a meaty version.
