Yield
4 servings (serving size: 1 3/4 cups couscous mixture and 1 tablespoon cheese)

Served over couscous, this vegetable-bean combination makes a complete one-dish meal with rich flavors of the Middle East. Add the Grilled Onion Raita (page 178) as a side dish, or serve with hot pepper sauce.

How to Make It

Step 1

Prepare grill.

Step 2

Cut zucchini and squash lengthwise into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Place zucchini, squash, bell peppers, and onion on a grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 3 minutes on each side or until well browned. Remove vegetables to a cutting board; cool. Chop vegetables into bite-sized pieces; place in a large bowl.

Step 3

Bring water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Stir in couscous and the next 5 ingredients (through cinnamon). Cover, remove from heat, and let stand 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork.

Step 4

Add couscous, tomatoes, and remaining ingredients except cheese to vegetable mixture; toss well. Sprinkle each serving with cheese.
