    Directions

    1. Preheat oven to 325°F. For the stuffing, toast 3/4 of the almonds in a frying pan. Add a little oil in a pan and chorizo and sauté for 3 mins. Add 3 diced onions and cook for 8-10 mins, stirring occasionally. Add vinegar and simmer for 1-2 mins then add 1/3 of the parsley. Spread stuffing evenly over turkey, then roll up and fasten with butcher's twine. Heat remaining oil in a roasting pan and sear turkey, turning as necessary. Add stock, then roast for about 2 hours.
    2. For the couscous, toast coriander and peppercorns in a frying pan for 1-2 mins. Remove from heat, grind with a mortar and pestle then pass through a sifter. Heat olive oil in a saucepan and sauté remaining onions, garlic and ginger for 3 mins. Add carrots, dates, remaining almonds, coriander, black pepper, bay leaves and paprika and sauté for 3-5 mins. Add orange juice, bring to a boil then simmer for 10-12 mins over low heat. Season to taste.
    3. Meanwhile, prepare couscous according to package directions and set aside to cool slightly. Mix couscous and remaining parsley with the carrot mixture. Remove turkey from the oven, cut into slices and serve with couscous and vegetables.
