Turkey with Veg and Couscous Salad

This is a take on a Weightwatchers recipe with my own twist. It was delightfully tasty and a bit different with the chopped tomatoes mixed in. I didn't think I'd like it cold but I loved it.

Turkey with Veg and Couscous Salad
(Serves 1)

60g Israeli couscous
1 turkey breast
pinch cumin
pinch coriander
1/2 onion, chopped
1/2 yellow pepper
1/2 small courgette
handful sugar snap peas, halved
handful spinach leaves
1/2 small tin chopped tomatoes

Bring a pan of water to the boil and cook the couscous according to packet instructions, drain, run under the cold tap and drain again well.

Heat a tbsp oil into a frying pan, add the onion, pepper and courgette and cook for 2-3 mins. Stir in the cumin and coriander. Add the sugar snap peas and cook for 2-3 mins more. Add the chopped tomatoes and spinach and stir to combine. Add the couscous and cook for a min or 2.

Meanwhile, heat a griddle pan. Spray the turkey with cooking spray and cook for 3-4 mins on each side. Remove and leave to cool.

Transfer the couscous mixture to your lunchbox and leave to cool. Slice the turkey and top the couscous when cool.
