    So yum! I wasn't sure what leaf lemon meant - I guessed maybe a slice of lemon peel? I added coconut natural yoghurt at the end instead of a dairy based natural yoghurt. This will be a favourite. tmrc_emoticons.)

  • Great recipe👍...

    Great recipe👍
    To be honest the formation of this recipe is a little unclear (where is yoghurt added for example, lemon leaf I assume to be a slice of lemon peel, and may have been my error but assumed by the way it was written to add tomatoes, chick peas and lemon rind to bowl and mix on speed 8 - mush, had to restart it🙀) but apart from that a really nice recipe and recommend - I served with flathead tails and avocado slices on the side for a light hot weather dinner - could certainly make it as an all in one (throwing in corn’ nuts etc to make more substantial) and adding protein on top
    oh I also as a rule cook the cous cous in stock (chicken) as opposed to water for flavour
    well done x

    A lovely salad which I prepared for my Christmas party. Wasn't completely sure when I was meant to put in the yoghurt, but put it in at the end when I mixed everything through.
