You can either place everything in a bowl and toss it together or lay it all out in a bowl and and drizzle with the dressing. You’ll need a splash of lemon juice or vinegar for the dressing.

*Coriander is a shared ingredient, half for each dish.

 

Instructions

1

Bring a medium pot of salted water to the boil.

2

Peel the corn and cook in boiling water for about 7 minutes.

3

While the corn is cooking, remove the tops off the beans.

Peel the garlic and roughly chop.

4

Remove the corn and set aside.

Cook the beans in boiling water for 45 seconds. Remove the beans (but leave the water on). Cool the beans under running cold water.

Add the couscous to the pot and cook for 12 minutes, or until tender. Strain and allow to cool slightly.

5

Cut the cherry tomatoes in half.

Open and strain the tinned beans. Toss with a pinch of salt and pepper.

Cut the kernels off the cooked corn.

Cut the cucumber into thin half moons.

6

Remove the mint leaves from the stalk and along with the coriander, roughly chop. Place in a blender along with the avocado, coconut yoghurt, garlic, roughly chopped spring onion and water and a splash of lemon juice or vinegar. Add a pinch of salt and blend until smooth. Add more water, if needed. Taste and adjust the salt or acid, as needed.

7

Place everything in a bowl. Add half the dressing and toss. Serve immediately with extra dressing on the side.
