Couscous salad with roasted courgette

I really enjoy a couscous salad for lunch as it's such a versatile and filling thing. Today I combined couscous with a roasted courgette and onion, and also added some pomegranate seeds. This salad could be eaten either warm or cold, however you would prefer. I always like the freshness and colour that pomegranate seeds add to any dish.

Have a look how I made my salad.

1 yellow courgette
1 red onion
2 tomatoes
1 spring onion
1 dl couscous
1 garlic stock cube
3 tbsp olive oil
½ tsp salt
½ tsp ground black pepper
4 tbsp pomegranate seeds

Roast the roughly cubed courgette and red onion at 220C for about 15 minutes. Brush them with olive oil before the roasting.

Cook the couscous. Bring one decilitre water to boil and remove it from the heat. Add the garlic stock cube and pour in the couscous and let it swell for about 10 minutes. Let the couscous cool.

Chop the tomatoes and spring onion. These will be added fresh to the salad.

Combine the components and season with olive oil, salt and pepper and sprinkle pomegranate seeds on the top. And the salad is done!

What is your favourite couscous salad?
