    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 10 1/2 ounces couscous
    • 1 7/8 cups vegetable broth
    • 1 lime, juice
    • salt & freshly ground black pepper
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 5 ounces red peppers, from a jar drained and cut into 1/2in wide strips
    • 7 ounces Fontina cheese, diced (or any other good melting cheese)
    • 1 egg, beaten
    • 4 tablespoons chives, snipped

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Put the couscous into a large heatproof bowl. Stir together the vegetable broth, lime juice and a good grinding of black pepper, then pour over the couscous. Leave for 15 minutes until all the broth has been absorbed.
    2. 2
      Heat a splash of the olive oil in a 9in non-stick frying pan. Stir the red pepper strips, cheese, egg and chives into the couscous, then tip into the pan and pat down well into a cake.
    3. 3
      Cook over a gentle heat for 15 minutes, without touching, until the base is crisp and golden.
    4. 4
      Carefully slide the couscous cake on to a plate, then invert back into the pan, adding the rest of the oil if needed. Cook for a further 10 minutes or so until the other side is golden.
    5. 5
      Slide back on to the plate and cut into wedges to serve.
