Grilled Aubergine and Peach Couscous

The summery sweetness of flat peaches combines beautifully with aubergines and other goodies in this delicious couscous salad.

Serves 2.

Note: Grill the halloumi right before you’re going to eat, it tastes so much better fresh from the pan!

Ingredients: 150g cherry tomatoes, 2 baby aubergine, 1 flat peach, small bunch of flat and curly parsley.

Larder: 100g couscous, juice of 1 lemon, 5 tbsp olive oil, salt, 150g halloumi, dollop of yoghurt.

 Instructions:

  • Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C.
  • Slice the aubergines into ½ cm thick circles. Slice and chop the peach into 1-2cm chunks. Place peach and aubergine pieces on a baking tray, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle aubergines with salt. Roast for about 15 mins or until soft.peaches and aubergine 1600px
