Couscous with dates and mint

Luke Mangan

all details

I reckon the key to healthy eating is to avoid fads and choose food that's fresh, clean (and often green), balanced and full of flavour. And if you're eating vegetarian food, the same rules apply. Keep it fairly simple, think seasonal, and you're on the right track.

Ingredients

½ cup fresh or frozen peas

3 cups vegetable stock

400g instant couscous

1 cup mint leaves

1 cup dates, pitted and finely sliced

Extra virgin olive oil

Method

Boil the peas until just tender. Drain and set aside.

Bring the stock to the boil. Place the couscous in a large bowl and pour the stock over it. Tightly cover the bowl with a lid or clingfilm and leave for 10 minutes. Fork it through until light and fluffy.

Finely slice two thirds of the mint and add to the couscous, along with the dates and peas. Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and mix well.

Serve warm or cold in bowls garnished with remaining whole mint leaves.
