(Serves 6)



2 pork fillets, each about 500g/1lb 2oz, trimmed of any fat

2 tsp olive oil

3 tsp ground cumin

1 tsp ground cinnamon

4 tsp grated ginger

250g couscous

100g sultanas

zest and juice 1 lemon

small bunch mint, chopped

200g fat-free natural yogurt



Heat oven to 190C/170C fan/gas 5. Brown the pork in a non-stick frying pan over a high heat for 4-5 mins, turning twice. Mix the oil, 2 tsp cumin, cinnamon, 2 tsp ginger and some seasoning, then rub all over the pork. Transfer to a roasting tin and roast for 30-35 mins or until the juices run clear when the thickest part is pierced with a skewer. Mix the couscous with the remaining cumin, the sultanas, lemon zest and juice, then season and pour over 400ml boiling water. Stir well and cover for 5 mins, then stir in the mint. Stir the remaining ginger and a little seasoning into the yogurt. Thickly slice the pork and serve with the couscous and ginger yogurt. *BBC Good Food Magazine*
