½ tsp ground cumin

¼ tsp ground coriander

¼ ground cinnamon 

½ tsp ground turmeric

4 cloves garlic- crushed

200g pearl cous cous (dry weight)

500ml vegetable stock

1 tbsp lemon juice

¼ red onion- thinly sliced

  1. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the MEET Tenders, and cook for 3 minutes, turning regularly, until golden crisp. Set aside.
