Healthy greens box

This vitality-boosting greens dish is a medley of store-cupboard staples and ingredients that were also used earlier in the week. This recipe has been created to take to work in your lunchbox.

1. Cook the broccoli in boiling water for 3–4 minutes until bright green and starting to soften. Plunge into cold water to stop it cooking, then shake off the excess water and place on a chopping board with the spinach. Add a few large mint leaves and throw on a good pinch of salt and pepper. Chop, chop, chop until you have finely chopped greens. Scrape these straight into your lunchbox, pour the uncooked couscous on top and gently sit a lemon half in it.
2. Mix the seeds with the cumin and wrap in clingfilm, so they stay crisp until you’re ready to eat.
3. In a small jar, mix the juice from the remaining lemon half, a good swig of olive oil (twice as much oil as juice is a good ratio), the harissa, a few small mint leaves and the feta. Screw the lid on and put in your lunchbox.
4. At lunchtime, boil the kettle. Take the lemon, seeds and jar from your lunchbox then pour in boiling water to just cover the couscous. Pop the lid on and wait 8–10 minutes until the water is absorbed and the spinach is wilted. Squeeze in the lemon, pour over the dressing and mix with a fork. Sprinkle with seeds before eating.
