If you are looking to make it vegetarian, this meal works wonderfully with some pan-fried tofu dusted with cornflour and ras el hanout mixture and using agave instead of honey. What is more, whilst we haven’t yet tried it ourselves, we hear from our friends that chicken can be substituted with cauliflower to make it into a vegetarian meal.

How to Make Ras El Hanout Chicken with Tahini Sauce?

First, preheat the grill to high. Lay the chicken thighs in a single layer on an oven tray. Drizzle the chicken with a tbsp olive oil and sprinkle the top with ras el hanout, salt and pepper. If you fancy blending your own ras el hanout spice mix, you can find a recipe here. Grill the chicken for 13-15 minutes, until fully cooked through.

Cut the cucumber in half lengthways. Using a teaspoon scrape out the seeds. Then slice the cucumber thinly. Peel and thinly slice the red onion. Place the onion and cucumber in a bowl, season with salt and set aside.

Place couscous in a large bowl, crumble in a quarter of a stock cube and mix. Pour 140ml of the boiling water over the couscous and cover with a plate for 5 minutes.

For the tahini sauce, mix tahini, honey, soy sauce, garlic, lime zest and juice and 2 tbsp of olive oil in a small bowl.
