Preheat the oven to 240°C/220°C fan-forced. Peel the kumara, then cut into bite-sized chunks. Cut the red onion into wedges. Cut the carrot into bite-sized chunks. Cut the beetroot into small chunks.
Place the kumara, onion, carrot and beetroot on a lined oven tray. Drizzle generously with olive oil, season with salt and pepper and sprinkle with the chermoula spice blend. Toss to coat, then add a splash of water to the tray and roast until tender, 20-25 minutes.
TIP: If your oven tray is crowded, divide between two trays.
TIP: Beetroot stays firm when cooked. It's done when you can pierce it with a fork.
While the veggies are roasting, heat a medium 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 vegetable stock powder. Reduce the heat to medium, then simmer, stirring occasionally, until the couscous is tender and the water is absorbed, 10-12 minutes. Cover to keep warm.
While the couscous is cooking, combine the garlic & herb seasoning and a drizzle of olive oil in a medium bowl. Add the chicken thigh and toss to coat. Finely chop the garlic. In a large frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over a medium-high heat. Cook the garlic until fragrant, 1 minute. Transfer the garlic oil mixture to a small bowl, then add the Greek-style yoghurt. Season to taste and stir to combine. Set aside. Return the frying pan to a medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Cook the chicken, turning occasionally, until browned and cooked through, 10-14 minutes.
TIP: Chicken is cooked through when it's no longer pink inside.
Roughly chop the parsley. Add the roasted veggies to the couscous and toss to combine.
Slice the chicken thigh. Divide the roast veggie Israeli couscous between bowls and top with the chicken. Garnish with the parsley. Spoon over the garlic yoghurt to serve.
