Serves: 4-6
Preparation Time: 15 minutes

  • 150g club cheddar cheese

  • 1 red capsicum, chopped
  • 1 red spanish onion, peeled and cut into small wedges
  • 4 rashers bacon, sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 11/2 cups couscous
  • 11/2 cups boiling water
  • 1-2 tablespoons sweet chilli sauce, to taste

Place sweet potato, capsicum, onion, bacon and garlic in a baking dish. Drizzle with oil, season with salt and pepper and stir until well coated. Bake at 200°C for 20-30 minutes or until tender. Place couscous in a saucepan with a teaspoon of salt and add boiling water. Stir, cover and allow to stand for 5 minutes or until the water has been absorbed and the couscous is tender.
