Ingredients

Wholewheat Giant Couscous, dry

250 g

Peas, fresh or frozen

100 g

Lemon Juice, Fresh

10 ml

Lemon(s)

½ zest(s) of 1, plus wedges to serve

Olive Oil

2 teaspoons, extra virgin

Smooth Mustard

½ teaspoons, level, English

Courgette

3 medium, trimmed and cut into ribbons, discarding the seeds

Spring Onions

3 medium, trimmed and very finely sliced

Cherry Tomatoes

150 g, mixed colour, halved

Mint, Fresh

1 teaspoons, chopped, plus extra leaves to serve

Chicken breast, skinless, grilled

2 individual, medium, sliced

Instructions

  1. Bring a large pan of water to a boil. Add the couscous, then reduce to a simmer and cook for 6-8 minutes, adding the peas for the final minute. Drain, then put into a large bowl and season well.
  2. Meanwhile, make a dressing: mix most of the lemon zest and all the juice with the oil, mustard and a splash of cold water. Season to taste, then toss with the courgettes and leave to marinate for 5 minutes.
  3. Toss the couscous, peas, courgettes and dressing together with the spring onions, tomatoes and chopped mint. Divide between plates and serve topped with the chicken, extra mint leaves and remaining zest.

Notes

Use regular wholewheat couscous, if that’s what you have to hand, for the same SmartPoints.
