  • Soak wooden skewers in cold water for about 30 mins.
  • Put the vegies and bread on the skewers, generously spray with oil and season. Then cook on a lightly oiled preheated BBQ or ridged grill, sprinkling with lemon juice and brushing with oil as you do so.
  • At the same time, bring the water and chilli paste to the boil. 
  • Place the couscous, grated rind and juice of 1 lemon in a bowl. Pour in the boiling water and add the basil. Stir well and set aside for 5 mins to swell. Then add the butter and fluff up with a fork.
