Preparation

1
Done

Preheat oven to 450°F (230°C) (conventional).

2
Done

Line a baking tray with aluminium foil.

3
Done

Prepare spice rub in a small bowl by mixing all ingredients and rub it on the pork, using all the mix. Place pork on tray.

4
Done

Place onion, cauliflower and peppers on the baking tray next to pork, sprinkle with cumin and black pepper.

5
Done

Mix lemon juice and olive oil, using same bowl as used for spice rub (a little extra flavour never hurts!)

6
Done

Drizzle half the lemon and olive oil mix over the veggies and toss them lightly.

7
Done

Place the baking tray in the middle of the oven and let everything roast for 25 minutes. Turn the veggies and meat once after 15 minutes and continue to roast until done. The veggies will have a lovely caramelized appearance. (Oven temperatures may vary-check on vegetables so they do not get too dark!)

8
Done

In a small pot, bring 1 cup of water to boil, add couscous, cover and remove from heat immediately.

9
Done

To serve, fluff couscous with a fork onto a platter. Arrange roasted veggies and pork slices on top of couscous, drizzle with the rest of the lemon and oil mix. Sprinkle with parsley.
