Ingredients

  • 12 baby carrots, peeled
  • 2 parsnips, peeled and cut lengthways
  • 2 red onions, quartered
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • sea salt
  • 2 tbsp flaked almonds, lightly toasted
  • For the couscous
  • 200g instant couscous
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp coriander seeds
  • 3 tbsp sultanas
  • 400ml boiling water
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • small handful parsley leaves
  • small handful coriander leaves

Method

Heat oven to 200 degrees. Toss the carrots, parsnip and onion with the olive oil and balsamic vinegar and season well. Arrange on a baking tray lined with baking paper or foil and bake for 45 minutes or until well-browned, turning once or twice.

Turn the oven off, remove the tray and cover with foil to keep warm. Toss the couscous in a heatproof bowl with the spices, sultanas and salt. Add the boiling water, stirring. Cover and leave in the warm oven for 15 minutes. Fluff up the couscous with a fork, add the olive oil and lemon juice, parsley and coriander, and lightly toss. Serve topped with the vegetables and scatter with almonds.
