Method

  1. Heat the grill to high. Cut a the halloumi into 12 even pieces, then thread with the purple sprouting broccoli onto 4 skewers. Put the skewers on a baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil and season with pepper. Grill for 8-10 minutes, turning halfway, until the broccoli is tender and the halloumi is golden.
  2. Meanwhile, pour the hot vegetable stock over the couscous in a heatproof bowl. Cover and set aside for 5 minutes. Roughly chop a large handful of soft herbs, such as mint, parsley and dill.
  3. Fluff up the couscous with a fork, then stir in the chopped herbs, a pinch of salt and pepper, the zest and lemon juice and 1 tbsp olive oil.
  4. Mix the tahini and clear honey in a small bowl. Arrange the couscous and skewers on 4 plates, drizzle with the dressing and sprinkle over 1 tbsp black sesame seeds to serve.
