A roasted vegetable couscous is a quick and satisfying meal, perfect for vegetarians, and in this case even vegans! It is low-fat and filling, and can be served as a side dish as well as a main meal.
Roasting the vegetables brings out their best flavor and sweetness. You can also add cooked (or canned) chickpeas for extra crunch and protein. It's delicious with some sprinkled Feta or goat cheese on top! If you serve it as a main meal, serve the dish together with a salad and grilled tomatoes, for example.
Couscous is originally a North African dish that is popular around the Mediterranean and Middle East, as well as in many other countries around the world.
The word "Couscous" can be a bit confusing. The Berber word it is derived from; [Seksu], means well rolled, well formed, or rounded. Couscous is both a north African dish, a pasta and a grain. Couscous comes in many, many variations, and even cracked bulghur wheat is called Couscous...!
Anyhow, it is healthy, quick and simple to make and goes well with many vegetarian dishes and is a great substitute for example for rice.
