Method

Cook cous cous according to instruction - here it is recommended to use vegetable stock in a 2:1 versus cous cous. Generally, the hot stock is poured over the cous cous in a bowl and stirred with a fork until the cous cous has absorbed the vegetable stock.

We add the butter and oil right after the hot stock has been poured over the cous cous - to infuse and to coat the cous cous while stirring. Vegetable stock can be replaced with hot water or chicken stock.

Marinated cherry tomato salad

Cut the blanched tomatoes in half gently and mix all carefully in a bowl - leave to infuse at room temperature for 20 minutes covered, then transfer it to a covered container and store in the chiller.

Baked cherry tomatoes

Mix all in a small oven proof tray and bake it at 120 degrees Celsius for 70 to 90 minutes - cool and transfer to an airtight container and keep cold.

To serve, combine the cous cous with either the marinated or baked tomatoes and top with Emborg White Cheese.
