Ingredients

  • 2 parsnips (about 200g), peeled and quartered
  • 400g mixed heritage or chantenay carrots, trimmed (quartered if large)
  • 1 small or ½ large cauliflower (about 500g), cut into florets
  • 4 garlic cloves, unpeeled
  • 2 tsp ras el hanout
  • 2 tbsp clear honey
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 200g couscous
  • 250ml vegetable stock, hot
  • Juice of ½ lemon

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C/fan200°C/gas 7 and line a baking tray with baking paper. Add the vegetables and garlic, then sprinkle over the ras el hanout. Season, drizzle with honey and 2 tbsp of the olive oil, then toss to combine. Roast for 35-45 minutes, tossing occasionally, until tender and caramelised.
  2. 10 minutes before the veg comes out of the oven, combine the couscous and 1 tbsp of the oil in a heatproof bowl, then pour over the hot stock. Cover and set aside for 5 minutes or until the liquid is absorbed. Fluff up the couscous with a fork, then season and toss through the remaining oil and the lemon juice. Divide among plates, then top with the roasted veg and garlic. Serve with a dollop of yogurt and a sprinkling of coriander leaves, if using.
