Feta, Couscous & Roasted Aubergine Salad

  • Serves: 1
  • Preparation time: 30 minutes


Perfect for using up leftover roasted veg, this salad is a perfect dish to take into the office for lunch

  1. Roast the cubed aubergine in an oven (1800C) for 25 minutes or until soft.
  2. Soak the couscous in 175ml boiling water, leaving for at least 10 minutes until it has soaked up the water and you can fluff up with a spoon.
  3. Assemble all the salad ingredients together, starting with few spoonfuls of couscous, spreading it around the plate.
  4. Then pile on the sun-dried tomato, feta and aubergine.
  5. Finally top with mint leaves and serve with the dressing on the side.

 For a vegan alternative, replace the feta with 100g tinned white beans, such as cannellini or haricot
