FALAFEL WITH OLIVE AND TOMATO COUSCOUS AND TZATZIKI
Pre-heat oven to 180°C. Heat 30mls olive oil in a medium-sized saucepan. Add contents of bag of couscous and stir to coat. Add 2 cups of hot water and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer for 7 mins, stirring occasionally.
While still covered, remove from heat and let sit for a further 7-8 mins to let steam finish cooking.
While the couscous is steaming, place the falafels on an oven-proof tray. Bake in pre-heated oven for 8-10 mins until piping hot.
Transfer couscous to a large mixing bowl and add 1 tablespoon of olive oil, the mint, parsley, coriander, cucumber, tomato and capsicum to the couscous mix and gently mix through.
Serve the couscous on a plate or bowl, topped with the falafels, a drizzle of tzatziki and a sprinkle of toasted seeds.
