7-Vegetable Vegan Couscous


  • 2 onions

  • 3 carrots

  • 3 parsnips

  • 1/2 packet frozen broadbeans

  • 250g pumpkin

  • Canned chopped tomatoes

  • 250g turnip

  • Chopped parsley

  • Chopped coriander

  • 4 cloves crushed garlic

  • 2 tsp paprika powder

  • 1 tsp ginger powder

  • 1 tsp turmeric

  • 1/2 tsp cumin

  • 1/2tsp pepper

  • Salt to taste

  • Juice of 1 lemon

  • Steamed couscous


  1. Sauté the onions in olive oil in a large saucepan until clear.

  2. Add spices and garlic, add tomatoes and vegetables, add water or stock til the vegetables are covered, cover with a lid and simmer til tender.

  3. Steam couscous on a steaming pan. Instead of covering the vegetables with a lid, you can also steam the couscous on top of vegetables for extra flavour if you have a steamer to fit.

  4. When steam comes through the couscous, put the couscous on a large plate, sprinkle and fluff with cold water and let cool down. Then transfer the couscous to the steamer again. Repeat 3 times.

  5. Finish couscous with butter or olive oil. Enjoy!
