Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Balsamic Glazed Sausages

Preheat the oven to 220°C/ 200°C (fan)/ 425°F/ Gas 7

Cut the red pepper[s] in half (scrape the seeds and pith out with a teaspoon)

Top, tail and chop the courgette[s] into bite-sized pieces

Cut the red onion[s] into quarters, keeping the skin on and root attached

2 Balsamic Glazed Sausages

Peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic

Add the chopped vegetables and chopped garlic to a large bowl with a large drizzle of olive oil, season generously with salt and pepper and give everything a good mix up

Add the vegetables to a baking tray (use tin foil to avoid mess!)

3 Balsamic Glazed Sausages

Add the Cumberland sausages to the tray

Put the tray in the oven for 20-25 min until the sausages are golden and cooked through (no pink meat!) and the vegetables are starting to brown

Whilst everything is in the oven, boil a kettle

4 Balsamic Glazed Sausages

Dissolve 1/2 [1] Knorr chicken stock cube in 200ml [400ml] boiled water

Add the couscous to the stock, then cover and set aside

5 Balsamic Glazed Sausages

Add the balsamic vinegar and 1 tbsp [2 tbsp] sugar to a pot over a medium-high heat

Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to very low and cook for approx. 2-3 min or until it turns into a runny glaze that coats the back of a spoon

Tip: Watch the pan like a hawk to stop the glaze from burning!

Once done, remove the pot from the heat and set aside until serving – this is your balsamic glaze

6 Balsamic Glazed Sausages

Fluff the cooked couscous with a fork

Carefully remove the skin from the cooked onions by cutting the root end off and peeling off the skin, then separate the onion into petals

Chop the cooked red pepper into small pieces

7 Balsamic Glazed Sausages

Chop the basil finely, including the stalks

Mix the roasted vegetables and chopped basil through the couscous – this is your roasted veg couscous

Drizzle generously with olive oil and taste for seasoning, adding more salt and pepper if needed
