  1. Preheat your grill to a high heat, outdoor or indoor.
  2. Brush vegetables lightly with olive oil, and place them on the grill. Cook, flipping over occasionally, until just tender.
  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 with a fork when done. Let couscous cool to room temperature.
  4. Place couscous on a plate and top with veggies. Drizzle with a small amount of olive oil and Balsamic vinegar.

This was pretty good. I actually cut the veggies up really small and mixed them in with the couscous. Thought maybe I could get my son to eat it, but no such luck. Made a very nice side dish for...

I made this tonight and it was simple and delicious. I roasted the vegetables, even though the recipe says to grill them. I added salt, pepper and ground Italian seasoning plus olive oil. The...

I followed the recipe very closely but drizzled some extra balsamic vinegar on the couscous and stirred everything together. Grilling the vegetables over charcoal gave it a nice smoky flavor. ...
