Tabbouleh with carrots and almonds

 

Preparation + cooking time: 20 mins

Easy

 

Serves 4:

  • 300 g carrots
  • 1 small yellow pepper
  • 40 g brown almonds
  • 1 lemon
  • 150 g couscous
  • 1 bunch coriander
  • 1 tbsp. ras-el-hanout
  • 3 tbsp. rapeseed or olive oil
  • salt and pepper

 

Method:

  1. Place the couscous and the ras-el-hanout in a salad bowl, cover with salted boiling water and leave to swell.
  2. Peel the carrots, cut them into 4 lengthwise and then chop finely. Immerse in a saucepan of boiling water and leave to simmer for 3 mins. Drain and rinse with cold water.
  3. Dice the pepper finely. Chop the almonds roughly and the coriander finely.
  4. Pour the oil onto the couscous and mix with a fork to separate the grains. Add the lemon juice (to taste), the carrots, the pepper, the almonds and the coriander; mix well and season to taste. Serve as is or with grilled chicken. Great to share at a buffet, too.

Tip : If you prepare your tabbouleh in advance, add the almonds at the last minute so that they are nice and crunchy.
