Ingredients:

  • 120g couscous (uncooked weight)
  • 150ml boiling water
  • grated zest and juice of 1 orange
  • 3 tsps olive oil
  • 4 spring onions (thinly sliced)
  • 100g cooked beetroot, diced
  • 60g feta cheese, crumbled
  • a handful of parsley or mint, chopped
  • freshly ground black pepper

Method:

Put the couscous in a bowl and pour the boiling water over it. Cover and leave for at least 10 minutes until it swells and absorbs the liquid.

Fluff up the couscous with a fork and stir in the orange zest and juice and olive oil. Add the spring onions, beetroot, feta and herbs, folding them in gently.

Check the seasoning – you probably won’t need any salt as the feta is quite salty. Serve immediately or leave to cool and store in an airtight container in the fridge.
