This Moroccan-inspired vegan couscous salad makes for a delicious meat and dairy-free lunch. It’s easy and quick to make, portable and can be gluten-free too!

1 tsp smoked paprika, adjust to taste
1 tbsp nutritional yeast (optional)
2-3 tsp harissa paste, adjust to taste
1 tbsp lemon juice
salt and black pepper, to taste
