Make the spinach-almond couscous
• Add the couscous to the pot of boiling water; cover and remove from heat.
• Let stand for 5 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed.
• Fluff the cooked couscous with a fork, then add the spinach and almonds. Stir until the spinach is slightly wilted.
• Season with S&P to taste. Drizzle with olive oil and set aside in a warm place.

Start the carrots
• While the couscous cooks, in a large pan, heat a generous drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot.
• Add the carrots and cook, stirring occasionally, 6 to 8 minutes, or until lightly browned and slightly softened.
• Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 4 minutes, or until softened. Season with S&P to taste.

Add the sauce

• Cook, stirring frequently and scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan, 2 to 3 minutes, or until the liquid is slightly reduced in volume.
• Remove from heat.

Finish and plate your dish
• Off the heat, add the Greek yogurt and as much of the harissa paste as you’d like to the pan (control the level of heat to your taste); stir until thoroughly combined. Season with S&P to taste.
• For plating, divide the spinach-almond couscous between your dishes. Top with the carrots and sauce.
• Garnish with the mint (roughly chop before adding). Bon appétit!
