Recipe

Lately I have been on a couscous kick. I think it's mainly due to really burning myself out on brown rice, which I eat all the time. I love the light fluffy texture of couscous and also that it cooks in about 5 minutes. One of my favorite dishes to make with couscous is this simple dish with roasted vegetables, lemon juice, balsamic vinegar, and feta cheese. You can use almost any combination of vegetables, but I recommend always using tomatoes since they add liquid to the dish and help flavor the couscous.
