  1. Heat some oil in a large pan.
  2. Add all the veggies, except tomatoes, olives, and cucumber. Season with salt and pepper and saute for 5 minutes.
  3. Add couscous and water. Cover, then boil until fluffy and all the water has been absorbed.

  5. I prefer this couscous salad served cold, but you can also eat it while it's hot.
