Still summery baked couscous (with tuna, artichokes and almonds)

A bit of a cheat, this recipe! I used ready-to-roast vegetables, deli counter artichokes and tinned tuna! But it just goes to show what you can do with fresh supermarket ingredients, and how you can jazz them up with funky combinations! The step that took the longest was waiting for the roasted vegetables!

Still-summery couscous bake

110g dried couscous (I used Waitrose lemon & garlic couscous but you could use plain or Wholewheat)
2 oranges, juice and flesh
Packet ready-to-roast Mediterranean vegetables
1 tin tuna
175g deli chargrilled artichokes
Generous handful flaked almonds

Place the vegetables (in their tray!) into the oven to roast, about 45 minutes.


Remove the juice and flesh from the oranges by any means, I used a messier method by halving the fruit and pulling out the flesh with my fingers. This will get the juice out as well in one easy step!


Add couscous, tuna and artichokes (halved), topping with 200ml cold water. Stir. On the hob bring everything to boil, cover and remove from heat. Let rest 5 minutes.

Once the couscous is cooked, add the roasted vegetables, stirring through. Place the mixture in an ovenproof dish and top with flaked almonds. Bake a further 15 minutes.
