Yummy!! Pair with a salad and some wine. Perfect. There are even left overs.

This was good. I used white vinegar. I also broiled1 cube of beef bouillon with 1 cup of water and poured this over the vegetables. I added some other seasonings like garlic and onion powder extra pepper. Very tasty.

Was very delicious and easy to make. I added some fresh cilantro and chili pepper since we love spicy food. I also topped it with bulgur instead of couscous. Will make it again for sure!

I prepared this as directed and it was delicious. The feta cheese really adds a nice saltiness and is an essential ingredient. Will definitely make again.

I made it with portabellas and sweet onion over Roasted Pine Nuts Couscous and IT WAS JUST AMAZING! Zucchini and peppers were so juicy and full of flavor. Thank you for the recipe.

This was delicious! I used Portobello mushrooms, white onions and squash, and placed it over parmesan couscous. SO good! The vegetables were packed full of flavor too :-)

This was quick and easy. I made it on rice and it was teeny bit bland. Perhaps I should have added more salt. Otherwise, a wonderful recipe that will become a staple.

This is excellent! Just went out to the garden, picked a variety of fresh vegetables. Added the marinade (substituted balsamic vinegar with regular vinegar) and it all turned out great! Topped the cooked veggies with quinoa (instead of couscous) and grated cheddar cheese (instead of feta). Delicious!
