Green couscous with halloumi & pitta bread

Description

Semolina – made from the hard outer part of wheat – is used to make couscous. Like pitta bread, couscous provides toddlers with a great source of slow-release energy. The watercress is a excellent source of vitamins A and C, while the tomatoes are packed with immune-boosting antioxidants.

Method

  1. Put the couscous into a bowl, pour over the boiling stock or water and stir. Cover and leave for 10 mins, or until the couscous has absorbed all the liquid and softened. Stir the couscous with a fork, so it’s broken up and fluffy.
  2. Add the watercress, cucumber, fresh mint and tomatoes, mix and season.
  3. Mix the dressing ingredients and pour over the couscous.
  4. Slice the Halloumi cheese into eight pieces and dip each piece in the seasoned flour. Heat the oil and fry the Halloumi for 1 min on each side.
  5. Toast the pitta bread, cut in half widthways, and then open up the ‘pockets’.
  6. Fill the pittas with Halloumi, couscous and lettuce. Heap any remaining couscous on the side of the of the plate and eat with a spoon.
