This sweet and spicy lamb with herby couscous is ready in minutes and you can stir in some ready-to-eat chopped dried fruit if you like. The lamb is a good source of protein and easily absorbed iron needed for healthy blood.

2 tbsp fresh mint

A handful of fresh flat leaf parsley

Preheat the grill to a high setting. On a plate, mix the honey and harissa together, then add the lamb steaks and rub them into the mixture to coat all over. Put the couscous in a bowl and pour over the hot stock. Stir then cover with foil and set aside. Place the lamb on a baking sheet and grill for 2-3 minutes on each side. Finely chop the herbs and stir into the couscous with the olive oil and pistachios, and season. Serve warm with the lamb and drizzle over the juices from the baking sheet.
