Fluffy couscous mixed with grilled veggies and dressed with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. A delightful vegetarian dish.


Serves: 8 

  • 1 large zucchini, thickly sliced
  • 125g mushrooms, quartered
  • 1 red capsicum, sliced

  • 750ml water
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 350g couscous
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:40min 

  1. Preheat your grill to high heat.
  2. Brush vegetables lightly with olive oil, and place them under the grill. Cook, turning over occasionally, until just tender. Watch they don't burn
  3. While the vegetables are grilling, bring water, salt, 1 tablespoon olive oil and couscous to boil in a large pot. Once the water has come to a boil, remove the pot from the heat and let it stand 5 minutes. Fluff the coucous with a fork when done. Let couscous cool to room temperature.
  4. Toss couscous with veggies and drizzle with remaining olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

Okay...the first time around, I made this as a side dish for some pork chops. My fiance said it was bland. There were leftovers, since he wasn't fond of it (I thought it was okay). Anyway, the next day, I sauteed some tofu and threw the leftover couscous in, making a vegetarian one-pan dinner of sorts. It was brilliant! I highly recommend adding the tofu. - 08 Oct 2008


Used different ingredients. I added two chicken stock cubes to the water which gave the couscous some flavour and used roasted tomatoes and red onions as that was all I had around. I sprinkled it with balsamic vinegar dressing which gave it some great flavour. It turned out pretty good...I will definitely make this recipe again, my three year old loved it! - 08 Oct 2008


Very yummy and filling! I would drizzle the oil and vinegar on the veggies after you put them on the couscous to serve, b/c ours was a little bland. I might add some salt and pepper, too. But great and easy! - 08 Oct 2008
