  • 1 cup of couscous
  • 1 1/4 cups of vegetable broth or water
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 bell peppers, diced
  • 1 large zucchini, diced
  • 1 large eggplant, diced
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 cup of crumbled feta cheese
  • Fresh parsley, chopped, for garnish (optional)
  • Lemon wedges, for serving (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C (400°F). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil.
  2. In a medium saucepan, bring the vegetable broth or water to a boil. Stir in the couscous, cover, and remove from heat. Let it sit for 5 minutes, then fluff with a fork. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, toss the diced bell peppers, zucchini, eggplant, and sliced red onion with olive oil, minced garlic, dried oregano, salt, and pepper until evenly coated.
  3. Spread the seasoned vegetables in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet. Roast the vegetables in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until they are tender and lightly caramelized, stirring halfway through cooking.
  4. Once the vegetables are roasted, transfer them to a large serving bowl. Add the cooked couscous and crumbled feta cheese, tossing gently to combine.
  5. Taste and adjust seasoning if needed, then garnish with chopped fresh parsley, if desired. Serve the roasted vegetables, feta, and couscous meal warm, with lemon wedges on the side for a refreshing citrusy touch.
