Minted aubergine, courgette and couscous salad

Written by McDonald, T.  |  Date 14th of August 2023 

Fresh tasting dinner.  The lemon and mint combine to create a fresh taste with plenty of flavour. The aubergine and couscous soak up lots of different flavours that go great with the different texture that the onion and bell pepper provide.

Notes

  • You don't need to use oil.
  • Make sure the frying pan is hot and the water starting to steam before you add the veg. 
  • Use a frying pan with a lid if you have one.
