What you’ll need:

250g of instant couscous

500g broccoli (frozen or fresh, either is good)

2-3 tablespoons of raisins or sultanas

200g crème fraîche

2-3 tablespoons of sunflower seeds

150g of feta cheese (Greek style salad cheese)

salt, pepper, mint (either fresh or dried), herbs

a large deep baking tray and some butter to grease it

How to do:

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C (fan heat). Grease baking tray with some butter and put aside for later use.
  2. Put couscous in a bowl and add boiling water (check out cooking instructions for the exact amount of water). Let soak.
  3. Chop broccoli into little florets and slice up the stalk into thin slices. In a saucepan, get salted water to boil and cook broccoli for 3 – 4 minutes. Drain and put aside
  4. Stir through the couscous to loosen it up and add raisins and half the crème fraîche to it. Mix well and season with salt, pepper and mint.
  5. Put the couscous into the tray. Make sure it forms a nice dense base covering the entire tray.
  6. Over low heat, mix the broccoli with the rest of the crème fraîche and season with salt, pepper and herbs before spreading it on top of the couscous.
  7. Dice up the feta cheese and spread it over the broccoli.
  8. Sprinkle with sunflower seeds and put it in the oven. Bake for 15 minutes. Take out as soon as the feta cheese starts to get brown.

Bon appetit.
