Ingredients

2 Small aubergines. A teaspoon of coconut oil. ½ medium onion, finely chopped. ½ tsp ground cumin. ½ tsp ground coriander. ¼ tsp hot chilli powder. Pinch ground cinnamon. 227g Tin chopped tomatoes. ½ Red pepper, deseeded and diced. 1 Medium courgette, cut into 1.5cm/½in chunks. 400g Tin chickpeas, drained and rinsed. 2 Heaped tbsp roughly chopped fresh coriander, plus extra to garnish. 400ml/14fl oz vegetable stock, made with ½ stock cube. ½ Small lemon, juice only. 15g Roughly chopped pistachio nuts (alternatively use toasted flaked almonds). Pinch of Profusion Salt. 100g Coconut yoghurt yoghurt, to serve. For the couscous: ½ vegetable stock cube. 80g Profusion Organic Chickpea Couscous. ½ Small lemon, finely grated zest only. 2 Heaped tbsp roughly chopped fresh coriander. Freshly ground black pepper. Pinch of Profusion Pink salt.

Method

Preheat the oven to 200C/180C Fan/Gas 6. Cut the aubergines in half from top to bottom and score in a criss-cross pattern through the flesh. Place on a small baking tray and with the coconut oil. Season with a little black pepper and bake for 30-40 minutes or until very tender and lightly browned. Meanwhile, put a small amount of coconut oil in a frying pan and place over a medium heat. Add the onion and cook for five minutes, stirring regularly until softened and lightly browned. Add the cumin, coriander, chilli and cinnamon and cook for a few seconds, stirring constantly. Pour the tomatoes into the pan. Add the pepper, courgette, chickpeas, coriander and stock. Season with a little salt and lots of ground black pepper and bring to a gentle simmer. Cook for around 20 minutes, stirring occasionally until the vegetables are tender and the sauce is thick. Just before the sauce is ready, make the couscous. Dissolve the stock cube in 100ml/3½fl oz just-boiled water in a medium bowl. Stir in the couscous, cover and rest for three minutes. Add the lemon zest, coriander and season to taste. Toss well together, using a fork to break up the clumps of couscous. Divide the aubergines between four plates. Stir the lemon juice into the chickpeas and season to taste. Spoon the spiced chickpeas over the aubergines. Add the couscous and sprinkle with chopped nuts. Garnish with coriander and yoghurt.
