Cook the veg while you wait for the water to boil. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet or frying pan then add the broccoli and halloumi and leave to griddle for 5 mins. With a minute to go, add the garlic. Transfer to a serving dish along with the za’atar and lemon juice and toss to combine

While waiting for the veg to cook, prepare the couscous by placing it in a heatproof mixing bowl along with the boiling water and stir well. Cover and leave to stand as per cooking instructions (around 5-10 mins) then drain any excess water and place in a serving dish. Stir through the remaining couscous ingredients, add a drizzle of olive oil and season with salt and pepper

Serve family-style alongside the Spiced Broccoli & Halloumi Strips and dig in! Absolutely delicious!
