Does anyone have any good cous cous recipes?

They can be chicken or vegetarian and preferably on the low fat side.

Thanks in advance.

  • Couscous Salad With Roasted Vegetables
    1 medium eggplant
    1 large green or red bell pepper
    2 medium firm, ripe tomatoes
    1 cup couscous
    2 cups boiling water
    1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
    2 Tbs. minced fresh dill
    2 bunches scallions, chopped
    1 medium stalk celery, minced
    1/4 cup olive oil
    juice of 1/2 lemon
    1 tsp. turmeric
    1/2 tsp. cumin
    sea salt
    freshly ground pepper to taste
    Preheat oven to 350 F. Place the eggplant on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil. Bake for 35-45 minutes, or until it has
    "collapsed." In the meantime, roast the pepper and tomatoes under a broiler, turning so that the skin on all sides becomes quite blistered. Place these in a paper bag to cool. Place the couscous in an ovenproof bowl. Pour the boiling water over it and cover. After 15 minutes, fluff with a fork.

  • When all the vegetables have cooled to room temperature, slip their skins off and chop into bite-size pieces. Combine the couscous, vegetables, and all the remaining ingredients in a serving bowl and toss thoroughly to mix. This salad is best served at room temperature.

    NOTE: this is also very good with roasted root vegetables, like turnips, sweet potatoes, parsips, beets, etc.
