This easy and flavor-packed Moroccan Couscous Salad is vibrant, colorful, and fresh. Made with tender couscous, roasted veggies, chickpeas, raisins, carrots, parsley, almonds, and a delicious cumin and coriander spiced dressing.
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
Make the couscous: In a medium saucepan, combine chicken broth, turmeric, and olive oil. Bring to a boil and stir in the couscous. Cover with a lid and remove from heat immediately. Let it sit for 5 minutes. Then fluff couscous with a fork. Add raisins, cover again, and set aside to let the couscous cool slightly.
Roast the vegetables: On 2 large sheet pans (to avoid overcrowding), add the diced red bell peppers, diced eggplant, diced zucchini, and diced red onion. Toss with salt (about 1/2 teaspoon per sheet pan), ground black pepper, and minced garlic. Roast for about 15 minutes or until softened, tossing halfway through.
Make the dressing: In a mason jar, combine the Dressing ingredients: olive oil, lemon juice, minced garlic, ground cumin, ground coriander. Add salt and pepper to taste. Cover and shake well to combine. Set aside.
In a large bowl, toss prepared couscous with the raisins, the roasted vegetables, chickpeas, grated carrots, chopped parsley, and almonds. Add the dressing and toss to combine a few more times. If needed, season with more salt and pepper. Enjoy!
