When we first tried this bright burst of goodness, we all agreed it had that "hug in a bowl" kind of feeling. There's wholesome chickpeas, kumara and spinach, plus a sublime, lightly spiced creamy sauce that soaks into the couscous. Enjoy!

Preheat the oven to 220°C/200°C fan-forced. Bring a kettle of water to the boil. Cut the kumara (unpeeled) into 1cm chunks. Cut the cauliflower into small florets. Place the kumara, cauliflower, a drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper on an oven tray lined with baking paper. Toss to coat and roast until tender, 25-30 minutes.

TIP: Cut the veggies to the correct size so they cook in the allocated time.


While the veggies are roasting, heat a large frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the flaked almonds and toast, tossing, until golden, 2-3 minutes. Transfer to a plate.


Finely chop the brown onion. Finely chop the garlic (or use a garlic press). Roughly chop the parsley leaves. Drain and rinse the chickpeas. Return the frying pan to a medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Add the onion and cook until softened, 4-5 minutes. Add the garlic and ras el hanout and cook until fragrant, 1 minute.


Add the coconut cream, chopped tomatoes, chickpeas, the salt, butter and 1/2 the vegetable stock (1/2 sachet for 2 people / 1 sachet for 4 people) to the frying pan and mix well to combine. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to medium-low. Simmer until the stew has reduced slightly, 8-10 minutes. Add the roasted veggies and baby spinach leaves and stir through until wilted. Season with pepper to taste.


While the stew is simmering, place couscous in a medium bowl. Sprinkle over the remaining vegetable stock (1/2 sachet for 2 people / 1 sachet for 4 people) and season with pepper. Add the boiling water (3/4 cup for 2 people / 1 1/2 cups for 4 people) and stir to combine. Immediately cover with a plate or foil and leave for 5 minutes. Fluff up with a fork and set aside.


Divide the couscous between bowls and top with the creamy chickpea stew. Garnish with the toasted almonds, parsley and a pinch of chilli flakes (if using). Serve with the Greek yoghurt.
