Grilled chops with squash couscous HERO

Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. In a bowl, combine the cumin, lemon juice and zest and the olive oil. Add the pork chops, toss to coat and chill for 30 minutes. Put the butternut squash on a baking tray and drizzle with oil, then roast for 40 minutes.

Meanwhile, preheat the grill to its highest setting. Pour 150ml (¼ pt) boiling water over the couscous, cover and leave for 10 minutes. Cook the pork chops under the grill for 8 minutes on each side until cooked through. Mix the couscous with a fork to break up any clumps then add the squash, apricots and mint. Serve with the pork chops.
