  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Put the sausages, carrots and onion in a roasting tin and toss with the cumin, coriander and olive oil. Roast for 30 mins, turning halfway, until cooked through and golden.
  2. Meanwhile, bring a kettle to the boil. Put the couscous in a bowl with 1 tsp oil; season well. Pour over 150ml boiling water and cover with clingfilm. Leave to stand for a few minutes until all the liquid has been absorbed, then fluff up the grains with a fork. Mix through the herbs, oil and lemon juice.
  3. To make the harissa yogurt, combine the ingredients in a bowl and set aside until needed.
  4. Once the sausages are cooked, drizzle over the honey and toss to coat. Serve the sausages and veg with the couscous, harissa yogurt and a scattering of extra herbs.
