Apple stuffed with fruit couscous and sprout salad

For the stuffed apples (serves 4)

• 3 small Fuji apples • 100 g of couscous • 200 ml of vegetable stock • 5 tablespoons of olive oil • 1 teaspoon of turmeric • Salt and pepper • 1 teaspoon of ras el hanout (oriental spice) • 1 lemon • 1 orange • A little chopped parsley

For the sprout salad

• Different types of sprouts (e.g. soybean, beetroot, pea and alfalfa)

Vinaigrette

• Safflower oil • soy sauce • apple vinegar • ½ diced shallot • salt and pepper

Preparation

Bring the vegetable stock to a boil, adding the olive oil, turmeric and ras el hanout. Season with salt and pepper and combine with the couscous. Briefly bring to a boil, then let it sit with the lid on. After 3-4 minutes, mix it with a fork. Hollow out the apples with a spoon and rub them with a dash of lemon juice so they remain a beautiful light colour inside. Separate the flesh from the core and cut into small pieces, peel the orange and add both to the couscous together with the parsley. Season again with salt and lemon juice to taste. Stuff the apples, decorate them with the sprouts and sprinkle with the vinaigrette.
