Vegan Mediterranean Couscous Method

To make your Vegan Mediterranean Couscous you will need to follow the below instructions.

Preheat the oven to gas mark 6/200 degrees.

Chop the aubergine, courgettes, tomatoes and onions and place on a large baking tray. Remove the skins of the garlic and place these on the same tray. Mix up the vegetables – using either your hands or a spoon – so the ingredients are evenly spread on the tray.

Wash the basil and sprinkle this on the top of the vegetables. Drizzle the olive oil evenly on top and add a sprinkle of salt to bring out the flavours.

Place the tray in the oven and roast the vegetables for approximately 45 minutes, turning them over with a spatula halfway through cooking.

When the vegetables are roasted, remove them from the oven. Get a large cooking pot and empty the tomato puree tube into this. Add the two cans of tinned tomatoes and cook on a medium heat until warmed through.

Add the roasted vegetables to the pot and stir. Turn off the heat and use a hand blender to blend the ingredients until smooth like a soup.

 Add the three tablespoons of nutritional yeast and stir well. 

Add the couscous and stir it in. Place the lid on the pot and leave for 5-8 minutes (or according to times on the packet).

Remove the lid and use a large cooking spoon to stir the couscous through so it separates.

Serve warm with salad or allow to cool and store in the fridge for later.
