Roasted Vegetable Couscous

3 carrots
1 onion
1 small eggplant, purple skin sliced off
4 cloves garlic
1/2 butternut squash, peel sliced off
olive oil

2 c. couscous
3 c. chicken broth (imitation or vegetable both work)
3 green onions, sliced
dash black pepper
1/4 tsp. thyme
1/4 tsp. rosemary
1 can garbanzo beans, drained

1 lb. bacon, cooked and crumbled (optional)

Cut all the vegetables into small pieces that are roughly the same size, about 1/2 in in diameter. Toss with olive oil and sprinkle with a little salt. Spread out on pans in a single layer. Roast at 425 until vegetables are tender, about 40 minutes.

When cooked boil together chicken broth, pepper, thyme, and rosemary. When boiling add the couscous, immediately remove from heat and cover tightly. Let sit for 5 minutes. Remove lid.

Combine roasted vegetables, couscous, garbanzo beans, and bacon. Toss to mix well.

Serve with a salad.

You can drastically change the dish my changing the spices. Try it with curry, Italian, Moroccan or southwestern spices too
