Couscous and Roasted Vegetables

Sick and tired of the usual pasta, rice or potatoes? I know that we are, and I was looking to try something new. I got the kids to help me empty out the kitchen cupboards to see what was lurking back there and we found an unopened bag of couscous that was luckily still in date!

Not really sure what to do with this, we decided to roast whatever veg was hanging about and 'cook' the couscous. Mixed together, they were a delicious combo that even had the kids asking for more!
