650g water, boiled

150g Black olives
100g Sundried tomatoes
150g Dried apricots
15g fresh parsley, destalked
½ lemon, juice

1 - Preheat the oven to 200ºC. Alternatively, to cook on a barbecue, light a barbecue 1-2 hours beforehand until the coals are glowing white.
2 - Assemble the food processor bowl onto the base unit and fit the Knife blade.
3 - Add the roasted red peppers, garlic, herbs, spices, tomato paste, lemon juice, oil, sugar, and seasoning into the food processor bowl. Attach the lid and ensure the pusher is in the feed tube. Mix on medium speed until smooth.
4 - Place the cauliflower steaks onto a large baking tray. Brush generously with the marinade and leave for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
5 - To cook in the oven, roast the cauliflower steaks at 200ºC for 30-40 minutes until cooked through. Turn the cauliflower over halfway through and brush again with some of the marinade.
6 - To cook on the barbeque, place the marinated cauliflower steaks on the hot grill. Cook for 10 minutes or until the cauliflowers are charred underneath. Brush again with the marinade and turn them over (reserve the leftover marinade for later). Cook for a further 5-10 minutes until they are charred on both sides and cooked through, the texture should still be quite firm.
7 - For the couscous salad, add the oil into a medium saucepan. Heat over a medium-high heat until hot.
8 - Add the couscous and fry for 3-5 minutes until the couscous is toasted. Pour in the water and add the salt, bring to the boil and then reduce the heat.
9 - Simmer for 6-8 minutes until the couscous is just tender. Drain the couscous through a sieve or colander and empty into a large bowl. Set aside for later.
10 - Retrieve and clean the food processor bowl.
11 - Fit the Dicing disc and attach the Express Serve lid, ensure it is locked into place. Fit the dicing grid into the feed tube.
12 - Place the large bowl containing the couscous underneath the Express Serve chute.
13 - Dice the red pepper, cucumber, olives, sundried tomatoes, and apricots into the bowl using the dicing pusher.
14 - Remove the Express Serve attachment and set the salad aside.
15 - Clean the food processor bowl and fit the Knife Blade, then assemble onto the power unit.
16 - Add the parsley into the food processor bowl and attach the lid. Turn the speed dial to Max until the parsley is finely chopped. Add the parsley into the couscous salad, along with the lemon, seasoning, spring onion, and pomegranate seeds. Stir until thoroughly combined.
17 - To make the yoghurt dressing, empty the remaining marinade into a small mixing bowl (approx. 1-2 Tbsp). Add the yoghurt, honey, lemon juice, and salt. Stir to combine.
18 - Place the cauliflower steaks on top of couscous salad and serve with the yogurt dressing.
