Couscous With Seven Vegetables

Couscous With Seven Vegetables created by Karen Elizabeth

This recipe is another Lucy Waverman recipe from Food and Drink Magazine. She says "It's good luck to have 7 vegetables in a CousCous Dish". Hmmm....maybe coriander is the 7th veggie? So I guess this will be a lucky recipe, enjoy! ;) Use vegetable stock to make this a vegetarian dish.

    Excellent recipe, so very easily and quickly made. I stopped for turnips on the way home and that was the hardest part :) A bit of chopping, and Bobs your uncle. I did pre-cook the carrots, onions and turnips, slightly, since DH doesnt enjoy crunchy vegetables, and I used a vegetarian garlic/herb broth. It doesnt get easier than this :) Thank you Leslie, this was made for ZWT 8, Pick-A-Pepper challenge

    Loved this, although I knew I would after reading the ingredient list! I have to admit, I messed this up a bit, but I still thought it came out great, so this is what I did: I used one whole small zucchini, and about half a cup of the carrot. I couldn't find any frozen diced turnip, and I didn't want to deal with cutting up a whole fresh turnip myself, so I added some frozen cut butternut squash instead. The rest of the veggies were measured as written. Because of the added veggies, it seemed as though I wouldn't have enough broth to properly soften the couscous, so I added a half-cup extra broth. I only had Israeli toasted couscous (larger grains) in the house, and it was still pretty chewy after 5 minutes of standing, so I put it back on the heat for about another 5 minutes. By this time, most of the squash chunks had dissolved into the couscous and became almost sauce-like. I didn't end up with dry fluffy couscous, but it was still delicious and the spicing was perfect. I served it with Recipe#428754. At some point, I would like to try it again (not messed up, of course, lol), and I"ll certainly give this a proper review when I do. At the moment, though, I just wanted to let you know that your recipe is delicious even when messed up, lol! Sorry, and thanks for posting :)! Made for The Queens of Quisine for ZWT6 NA*ME
