Instructions

Get Prepped
1
  • Boil 200ml water (500ml for 4p) in a large pot along with the stock powder.
  • Chop the sweet potato into 2cm chunks (peeling optional).
  • Roughly chop the parsley (stalks and all).
  • Drain and rinse the lentils in a sieve.
  • Zest and quarter the lime.

TIP: If you’re in a hurry you can boil the water in your kettle.

Cook the Couscous
2
  • Once the water is boiling, stir in the couscous then bring back to the boil. 
  • Pop a lid on the pot and remove from the heat. 
  • Leave aside for 8-10 mins or until ready to serve.
Fry the Sweet Potato
3
  • Place a separate large pot over high heat with a generous drizzle of oil.
  • When hot, add the sweet potato and cook until slightly softened, stirring occasionally, 4-5 mins.
  • Lower the heat to medium-high then add the ras-el-hanout with a pinch of salt and pepper.
  • Cook until fragrant, stirring continuously, 1 min.
Simmer the Stew
4
  • Pour the chopped tomatoes, coconut milk and 75ml water (double for 4p) into the pot with the sweet potato.
  • Stir in the lentils and peanut butter and give everything a good mix.
  • Bring to the boil, cover and simmer until the sweet potato is tender, 10-12 mins.

TIP: Add a splash of water if the stew becomes too thick.
