1½ cups cous­cous

4 tbsp olive oil

375ml boil­ing wa­ter

1 onion, sliced into thin wedges

1/2 but­ter­nut squash, peeled and cubed

Mix in the olives and cous­cous. Mois­ten with ex­tra olive oil and lemon juice or vine­gar and stir blue cheese through.

Make this dish ahead and serve warm or at room tem­per­a­ture.
