broccoli and feta couscous salad

a new year and a renewed commitment to packed lunches – i expect this is not uncommon at the moment and this broccoli and feta couscous is a delicious, healthy starting point.

i used a mix of normal and giant couscous (mograbiah) and then it was all about adding flavour. i fried sliced red onions and cavolo nero with chilli and garlic over a low heat, until the onions had started to caramelise and the cavolo had turned a very dark colour. broccoli was boiled and chopped into small pieces. feta was crumbled. this was all mixed with the couscous plus the juice and zest of a lemon and some herbs (mint and flat leaf parsley). i had intended to add toasted pine nuts but forgot – never mind, it tasted delicious nonetheless.
