Fruit & Veg

4 large tomatoes

2 eggplants

2 garlic cloves

½ bunch fresh cilantro

1 lb diced beef

10 oz couscous


Condiments

1 tsp cumin seeds

1 tsp garam masala

Olive oil

Method

To begin, preheat the oven to 400ºF.


Prepare the eggplants by trimming both ends, halving length-ways, and cutting them into thick slices. Roughly chop the tomatoes. Then, place the vegetables onto a large baking tray. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Ensure the vegetables are spread evenly in a single layer, then place them into the preheated oven for 20 minutes.


Meanwhile, in a heatproof bowl, cover the couscous with 600ml of boiling water. Cover and leave for 15 minutes.


Season the beef with salt, pepper, and 1 tsp garam masala. Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a large pan on medium-high heat, and add the beef. Cook for 8 minutes until browned on all sides. Then, add a generous dash of red wine vinegar and cook for a further 2 minutes.


Remove the beef from the pan and leave it to rest for a few minutes. Using the same pan, add the cumin seeds and crush in the garlic. Cook for 1-2 minutes until light and golden.


Now, fluff up the couscous with a fork and portion between 4 plates. Add the vegetables straight from the oven, followed by the diced beef. Sprinkle over the cilantro leaves, toasted garlic, and cumin seeds. Serve and enjoy!
