Olive oil roasted vegies with couscous & harissa yoghurt


  • Preheat oven to 200°-210°C fan forced (220°-230°C normal). 
  • Place the vegetables on a large heavy-bottomed baking tray and toss with a little oil and seasonings until well coated. Then cook in the oven for about 30 mins until tender.
  • When the vegies are almost ready, place the stock, 2 tbsp oil, 2 tspn harissa and the raisins in a heavy-bottomed pot. Bring to the boil and then pour the hot liquid over the couscous with ½ tbsp chopped coriander. Mix well and set aside for 3 mins until swollen. Then fluff up with a fork and taste for seasoning. 
  • In another bowl, combine the yoghurt and lemon juice with 1½ tbsp chopped coriander and the remaining harissa. Taste for seasoning.
  • To serve, spoon a mound of the couscous on individual plates and top with the roasted vegies, a sprinkling of harissa yoghurt and a little chopped coriander.
