2, 3, 4 and 5-oven AGA: Slide the baking tray onto the lowest set of runners in the Roasting Oven and cook for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile make the stuffing. Place the couscous into a bowl, pour over the hot vegetable stock and cover over with cling film. Leave to stand for 5 minutes. Put the chopped onion and garlic into a pan with the olive oil and cook until soft but not coloured. Then add the pinenuts and move the pan to the Boiling Plate to cook faster and lightly brown the pinenuts.
