People who follow me on Instagram might know that couscous has become a favourite dish in our home. We have a go to recipe that we make often, but we also like to try new recipes with couscous. I already tried to make a vegan couscous before but I often missed the feta. But with this dish from 30-minute vegetarian from Rose Elliot was the first vegan one that tasted so great that I didn't miss the feta at all. Therefore I really wanted to share this recipe with you.

Lukewarm couscous salad with sweet potato and lime (serves 4)
- 600 gr sweet potatoes, scrubbed and cut into 2x2 cm cubes
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 500 ml vegetable broth
- 250gr couscous
- 1 lime, both juice, and grated peel
- 4 tbsp chopped spring onions
- 15 gr fresh cilantro, chopped

Place the sweet potato with one tbsp of olive oil in an oven dish. Make sure all potatoes are covered with oil. Bake for 25 minutes on 220c, until soft.
Bring the vegetable broth to a boil and add the couscous and the remaining olive oil. Cover the pan, remove from the fire and let it rest for 10-15 minutes.
Remove the sweet potatoes from the oven and mix with the onion (we like to bake the onion), peel and juice of the lime and cilantro. You could add salt and pepper to taste, but we only added pepper, because there is already enough salt in the broth.
Stir the couscous with a fork until loose. Combine with the sweet potato mixture.
This is also a great dish to serve as lunch :)
