    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!

    I love both couscous and roasted vegetables, so I knew I'd really love this recipe. I did grill my veggies and they turned out very nicely, but you could probably use your oven on a high temp. to roast them. I especially love the kalamata olive flavor in the finished dish. I did not add feta, but I bet that would be wonderful. Thanks for sharing! ~Made for Veggie Swap~

    Love roasted veggies and couscous making this a great salad for me. Made with chives as the herb and 4 ounces of feta cheese. Had to sub roasted green beans for asparagus as asparagus is out of season and I do not like the caned kind. The lemon juice and chives accents the vegetables beautifully. What a great salad for summer. Thanks so much for sharing.


I'm a now vegan who used to make one heck of a souvlaki. I love cooking, I was a huge fan of Moosewood and Molly Katzen prior to going vegan (although that has nothing to do with my choosing the name Katzen - that's just what my German Grandma has called me all my life.) Aside from cooking, I also love scuba diving, cycling, politics, and reading.
