Loved this couscous! I loved grilled veggies so I knew this would be great and it was. I used basil for the herbs (plenty of it!) and did not used the olives or feta. Thanks for posting this recipe!

I really enjoyed this recipe. I love grilled veggies, and wanted to try these with couscous. I tried it first without the feta, then sprinkled a little fat free feta on a serving. I really liked it much more with the feta. So the feta will be a must for me from now on with the repeats of this yummy recipe! Thanks for sharing a yummy, healthy recipe!

Absolutely loved this recipe. Grilling/ roasting the vegetables gives a lovely smoky flavour. I used chicken stock to cook the couscous, rather than water, as I love the combination of that with lemon. A brilliant couscous recipe- thanks!
