    ElizabethKnicely's Note:

    A perfect summer meal. What I love about this recipe is the practicality; it is both quick to make and can wait for you; there's no hurry to serve. It's also a satisfying vegetarian meal that even carnivores love, or if a member of your household prefers meat, a chicken breast poached in water, wine, and paprika and then sliced very thin can be added. I do highly recommend the garnish I devised; it can be made very quickly while the couscous is cooking. Or even if you just zest a navel orange over this dish, the aroma is heavenly and it brings the flavors together. Enjoy!

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Heat oil in large pot over medium-low heat. Place onion, zucchini, yellow squash, and carrot in pot and cook, stirring occasionally, until onions begin to soften and turn translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the red and yellow peppers and mushrooms; cook another 3 minutes. Vegetables should still be firm.
    2. 2
      Pour in the vegetable stock and season with paprika, cardamom, salt, and cilantro. Bring mixture to a boil; reduce heat to low. Stir in chickpeas and tomatoes. Slowly pour in the couscous; stir. Cover pot immediately and remove from the heat. Let stand, covered, for 5 minutes. Fluff couscous with a fork. The couscous should have absorbed about half the cooking liquid.
    3. 3
      Serve at slightly warmer than room temperature. Garnish with orange zest and the grated cheese, paprika and almonds.

      This is great dish! I made it to bring to a birthday dinner and everyone loved it. I like that chickpeas add the extra protein so make this dish suitable as a meal by itself. Made for the Hot Pink Panthers, ZWT 9.

      What a lovely and comforting dish! The fact that it's vegetarian and made all in one pot just adds to the appeal. I didn't have any smoked paprika so used sweet and added just a dash of cayenne; I used pine nuts in the garnish instead of almonds because I had some on hand. I didn't use much orange zest because I didn't want it to overpower and the subtle hint of it was just right. Thanks for sharing your recipe! Made for ZWT9, The Apron String Travelers
