- 18.8g (6.3g saturated)
- 28.1g (3.9g sugars)
- 2-3 beetroot
- 200g chorizo, skin removed, sliced
- 200g giant couscous
- 300ml hot chicken stock
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tsp white wine vinegar
- 2 handfuls of watercress
- Parmesan shavings to serve
- Preheat the oven to 180°C/fan 160°C/gas 4. Wrap the beetroot in foil, then put in a roasting tin and roast for 20-30 minutes until tender. Open the foil and set aside until cool enough to handle. Wearing rubber gloves, peel the beetroot and cut into wedges.
- Heat a pan over a medium-high heat, then fry the chorizo until starting to crisp.
- Cook the couscous in the stock according to the pack instructions, then tip into a large serving bowl and fluff up with a fork. Drizzle over the oil and vinegar, then stir to coat. Add the beetroot and chorizo, season, then gently mix. Gently toss through the watercress, then scatter over the parmesan shavings.
