Preheat the oven to 240°C/220°C fan-forced. Cut the cauliflower into small florets. Cut the red onion into wedges. Slice the carrot into half-moons. Place the veggies on a lined oven tray. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat, spread out evenly, then roast until tender, 18-20 minutes.


While the veggies are roasting, heat a large saucepan over a medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Toast the Israeli couscous, stirring occasionally, until golden, 1-2 minutes. Add the water and chicken-style stock powder. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the couscous is tender and the water has been absorbed, 10-12 minutes.


While the couscous is cooking, combine the honey, chermoula spice blend, some Greek-style yoghurt (1 tbs for 2 people / 2 tbs for 4 people) and a pinch of salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Add the pork loin steaks and turn to coat. Heat a large frying pan over a medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. When the oil is hot, cook the pork until cooked through, 3-4 minutes each side (depending on thickness). Transfer to a plate and cover with foil to rest.

TIP: Pork can be served slightly blushing pink in the centre.


While the pork is cooking, zest the lemon to get a pinch, then slice into wedges. Finely chop the garlic. In a small bowl, combine a squeeze of lemon juice, the garlic and the remaining yoghurt. Season to taste.

TIP: Add less garlic if you're not a fan of the raw flavour.


When the veggies are done, add the lemon zest, roasted veggies, baby spinach leaves and the butter to the cooked couscous. Stir to combine until the butter has melted, 1-2 minutes.


Slice the chermoula yoghurt pork. Divide the lemon and roast veggie Israeli couscous between bowls. Top with the pork. Drizzle the lemon yoghurt dressing and any resting juices over the pork. Serve with any remaining lemon wedges.
