    Karen Elizabeth's Note:

    Couscous, traditional Berber food, is one of North Africas' great dishes. Here, mixed with lemon juice and mint and served with roasted vegetables, it makes a memorable meal. This is a family favourite, my youngest DD in particular is a couscous addict! (Preparation time does not include 3 - 4 hours marinating time) From Linda McCartneys World of vegetarian Cooking

      A delicious summer salad that looks so involved to make, but is really quite easy! I used homemade vegetabe stock instead of water for the couscous, and as I didn't have any aubergine, used a yellow squash (zucchini) and five portabella mushrooms. I also tossed in most of a pint of grape tomatoes that had been roasted. I only used half the olive oil prior to roasting the veggies - I didn't add any more when making the salad, as it didn't need it - it was delicious enough! And I did toss in some feta cubes, too. Delish! Thanks, Karen Elizabeth! Made for Veggie Swap 13.

      Excellent dish, thanks so much Karen Elizabeth for sharing this recipe. We had this with grilled lamb chops and a roasted beet salad...awesome combination! The freeze the other day got my basil so I used a couple of forozen pesto cubes which worked out rather well. I love the mint flavor. Thanks!

      Mmmm yum! I love making this kind of thing but have never had it written down! I don't like zucchini so I used some beetroot instead, which made it wonderfully rich. Since yellow capsicums were exceedingly expensive, I just used one in the salad, and put a red one in the cous cous. I also used chicken stock in the cous cous instead of just water, and cut up some of the beetroot leaves to toss through the veggies as they were ready. I did find the veggies a little oily, so i might not use so much oil next time. Thanks!
