Number of Servings: 4


    1 T olive oil
    1 C chopped onion
    2 large cloves garlic, minced
    1/2 t ground ginger
    1/2 t ground cumin
    1/2 t ground turmeric
    2 1/2 C canned vegetable broth
    1/2 t salt
    1 1/2 C (6 oz) fresh green beans, trimmed and cut in half
    1 1/4 C red or green bell peppers, sliced into 1 1/2 in pieces
    1 1/2 C sliced zucchini
    1 cup couscous, uncooked
    1/2 C seeded and diced plum tomato
    1/4 C minced cilantro


Heat the olive oil in a large heavy skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic, and saute until tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in the ginger, cumin, and turmeric, and saute 1 minute.

Pour in the broth, add the salt, and bring to a boil. Add the carrots, beans, and pepper; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 5 minutes. Add the zucchini, and simmer, covered, 5 minutes.

Uncover, increase the heat to medium-high heat. When the mixture boils, stir in the couscous. Cover, remove the skillet from the heat and let it stand for 5 minutes.

Stir in the tomato and cilantro, fluffing with a fork.

  • OH MY GOD - THIS IS SO YUMMY! I didn't have Tumeric, so I used Curry instead and it's perfect. I also had summer squash on hand so added that in addition to the zucchini. I'll definitely be making this again. - 8/1/10
