I really love Moroccan-style flavours – cumin, ginger, coriander, cinnamon! And the best is – there is a fabulous ‘short-cut’ available – Woolies’ Moroccan Rub! I use it so often, that I always buy 2 containers at a time! Very versatile and convenient 🙂 And it works great with lamb, chicken and veggies.
Here’s a quick and healthy salad to make the most of those flavours:
80g cooked couscous
75g chickpeas (tinned/cooked)
A big handful of fresh rocket
30g soft dried apricots, chopped
10g toasted almond slivers
100g plain fat free yogurt
1/2 tsp Woolworths Moroccan Rub (if you don’t have this – you can make up your own Moroccan blend -this recipe is great http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/moroccan-spice-blend-109356)
Mix couscous and chickpeas and place on bed of rocket, lightly stir through yogurt dressing. Season to taste. Sprinkle chopped apricot bits and toasted almonds over it.
