Toasting the orzo brings out a lovely nutty flavour, add as much or as little harissa as you like. Will easily serve 6 as a side dish or 4 as a main course.

50 g butter

150 g orzo

300 g bulgur wheat

2 tsp ground cinnamon

1.5 tsp salt

600ml vegetable stock

1-2 tbsp harissa paste

small bunch mint, finely chopped

small bunch coriander, finely chopped

Toasted almond flakes to garnish

Serve with my Greek style meatballs in a rich tomato sauce.

Melt the butter in a pan, when it starts to froth, add the orzo, coat with the butter, and stir until it starts to turn a light golden colour. Stir in the bulgur wheat, add the cumin and salt and a good grind of black pepper, stir again and pour in the stock.

Allow to come to a simmer, cover the pan and turn the heat to the lowest setting. Leave to cook gently for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and leave to steam with lid on for 10 minutes.

Fork through the pilaff, add the harissa paste and herbs.
