Seasonal Vegetable Couscous - Do as I Say, Not as I Did

This video recipe for a vegetable couscous shows you a wonderfully simple method for enjoying all those delicious seasonal veggies that can be found at your local farmer's market. The irony here is that this video was shot quite a while ago, and features such ubiquitous supermarket produce as "so-not-local" green zucchini and bell peppers.

This recipe was filmed for About.com last year, and is just now going live. Unfortunately, at the time a trip to farmer's market wasn't possible, and so a two-block walk to the local megamart had to do. That's not to say that this dish wasn't good, it was very good. It's just when I watch it now I'm imagining how awesome it could have been with some "real" vegetables (you know, like the ones grown in dirt, instead of hydroponic foam!). Enjoy!

I like couscous with sausage (I mean a smoked decent version of sausage). Give it try - even if your neighbour at BBQ will suspect you of being a lunatic. There is something about couscous it that combines really well with homemade sausage and chilled lager.

(And its infinitely faster to make and healthier than your average potato salad)
