Spice up your day with the aromatic flavours in this simple couscous dish – a staple when it comes to Moroccan cuisine. Eating a salad doesn’t mean you have to skimp out on the meaty goodness. For a fast, flavourful and versatile dish for any occasion, all with very little effort on your part, this Moroccan Fable couscous will not disappoint.


Spiced Fable:

  • 250g Fable
  • 1 tbsp plant-based “beef” stock 
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 1 tsp cumin powder
  • 1 tsp ground coriander 
  • 1 tsp brown sugar 
  • Pinch salt and pepper 
  • Pinch ground cinnamon 
  • 2 tbsp olive oil 
  • 1 red onion, cut into wedges 


  • 200g couscous
  • 2 cups boiling water 
  • 1 tsp olive oil

Additional ingredients:

  • 1 radicchio   
  • ¼ cup silvered almonds  
  • 1 lemon, cut into wedges  
  • Almond feta
  • Salt and pepper, to taste 
  • Coriander, to garnish
  • Olive oil, for dressing 


  1. Soak Fable with boiling water and plant-based stock for 5 minutes or until soft. Once done, drain the liquid then shred up Fable meat with a fork or your hands. Heat up a frying pan and fry the shredded Fable with all the spices for about 5 minutes (or until the Fable starts crisping up). Grill up the red onion in the same pan at the same time. 
  2. In a small pot over a medium heat, add oil and couscous. Let couscous brown slightly then add 2 cups of boiling water. Let couscous simmer with a lid on until water has evaporated completely. 
  3. To serve, start with the radicchio cups and fill with couscous first then Fable. 
  4. Top with grilled red onions, coriander, silvered almonds, almond feta, salt and pepper and a small drizzle of olive oil. Finish off a fresh squeeze of lemon.
