Couscous with Vegetables, Casablanca style
From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. If you have some harissa (hot sauce) serve it separately so that people can add to their serving as desired.
1 package couscous (8.8 oz)
In glass or ceramic batter bowl, combine water and couscous. Cover with a glass or ceramic plate or lid. Cook in microwave on high 5 minutes, then on half power (power level 5) for 8 minutes, or until pasta is tender and the water has been absorbed. In meantime, slice the vegetables into stick shapes. Saute for just a few minutes in olive oil and saffron. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. To serve, place the cooked couscous on a big flat plate and pile up the center a bit and then arrange the 7 vegetables in and around, drizzling on the vegetable cooking juice and sprinkling on more olive oil if needed/desired.
