Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)

Before you begin...

Get all your ingredients and equipment ready

Skim through these steps, then wash your fruit and veg

Note: Equipment and pan sizes vary. Make sure you cook food thoroughly (even if it takes you a little longer than 10 mins)


Now, let's get started!

Boil half a kettle

Slice the halloumi into thin strips

Grate the carrots

Add the grated carrot to a bowl with half [all] the white wine vinegar and set aside to pickle – this is your pickled carrot

Tip: Cooking for 2? Save the rest of the vinegar for another recipe!


Heat a large, dry, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) over a medium-high heat

Once hot, add the sliced halloumi and cook for 2-3 min on each side until golden and crisp


Meanwhile, add the couscous, sultanas, half the harissa paste (save the rest for later!) and a generous pinch of salt to a heatproof bowl with 200ml [400ml] boiled water, cover and set aside

Fluff with a fork before serving


Add the remaining harissa paste, honey, juice of 1/2 [1] orange and a generous drizzle of olive oil to a bowl and give it a good mix up – this is your orange harissa dressing


Peel the remaining orange and slice into segments

Chop the dill, roughly


Add the salad leaves, couscous, pickled carrot and half of the chopped dill to a bowl and give everything a good mix up – this is your pickled carrot & couscous salad
