I love roasted vegetables - they're so healthy, easy and delicious, and when paired with couscous, as in this recipe, they make for a quick full meal, as couscous is just as quick and easy to prepare. For a vegan version, omit the feta cheese.

For extra protein, use quinoa in place of the couscous. Recipe by the Wheat Foods Council.


  • 1 10-ounce box couscous
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into strips
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, cut into strips
  • 1 small yellow squash, sliced
  • 1 small zucchini, sliced

  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 3/4 tsp minced garlic
  • 3/4 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 3 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 5 ounces feta cheese (optional)

Steps to Make It

  1. Heat oven to 425 F.

  2. Prepare couscous according to package directions.

  3. Combine bell peppers, zucchini and yellow squash.

  4. In a small bowl, whisk together the salt, pepper, garlic, seasoning, oil and balsamic vinegar and toss with vegetables.
