Heat the oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Toss the aubergines with the olive oil and lots of seasoning. Spread out on a large oiled baking tray and cook for 20-30 minutes or until completely soft and golden, and there’s no sponginess left. Alternatively, you can BBQ over indirect heat, turning and cooking until completely soft and golden. Once cooked, cover with foil to keep warm and soften a little more.
Pour a little olive oil into a large frying pan, add the couscous then fry for 2-3 minutes or until golden. Pour in the vegetable stock and cook for 10-15 minutes or until just tender. Stir in 1/2 the lemon zest and juice, cool and stir in most of the herbs.
Mix the hummus with the yogurt and the rest of the lemon juice and zest, then spoon onto 8 plates and spread out. Top with the couscous and red peppers. Arrange the aubergines on top of the couscous and drizzle with some of the pomegranate molasses. Scatter over the feta and pine nuts, then another drizzle of molasses and the remaining herbs. Serve with the pittas.
