As I already mentioned on my lifestyle blog, Make Kit is one of those subscription services that send you everything you need to make a meal. They are vegetarian or vegan, a great product for those that are wanting to delve into the plant-based lifestyle but are struggling for food ideas. Or even just to try out a few meat-free meals and see that they can be satisfying, filling and CONTAIN PROTEIN!
You can see the Nut Loaf that I made over on my lifestyle blog.
This is the healthier of the two recipes, which is why I decided to put it here.
Roasted Cauliflower & Zhoug Couscous (vegan)
This only took 30 minutes to make. I’ve never heard of Zhoug before, but it’s really tasty. The kit had a pre-mix pot of Zhoug mix, but the recipe sheet also contained how to make it:
- 12g parsley
- 12g coriander
- 6g green chilli
- 1 clove garlic
- 30ml olive oil
- 12.5m white wine vinegar
- 1/4 tsp ground cumin
- 1/4 tsp salt
Mixing that with the couscous and chickpeas made it delicious. I’m not really a fan of couscous usually but I’m going to make a similar sauce again in the future when we have it.
As I mentioned in my last post, I don’t like fruit in my meals so I didn’t scatter the pomegranate on mine. The photo is of my boyfriends’ meal. I did eat some separately though because I love pomegranate.
The Roasted cauliflower was really nice too with the spicy rub – it was a bit like curry. Although I think if we made it again I’d chop the cauliflower into florets and stir the rub mix through rather than have a whole half so it cooks better. Things weren’t so cooked in some places.
Overall the meal was lovely and the couscous is something we’re going to make again for sure!
