Summer is here and its buzzing.  πŸ™‚  and along with it brings so many fresh colourful fruits and vegetables. I bought these fresh summer vegetables from the farmers market and decided to make a roasted vegetable couscous. This is definitely a dish to impress and brilliant when feeding large numbers. Perfect for my vegetarian as well as my non-vegetarian friends.  With two trays to vary the sausages this won’t be difficult. It’s easy to prepare ahead and ideal for sharing with friends.  

This has become a firm favourite in our house. Made it twice in a row last week. I tipped in sausages with this summer veggies to make a comforting midweek meal. I decided to glaze it with honey and mustard as it gives a them a sweet-savoury stickiness that is impossible to resist and the roasted veggies adds such a lovely flavour to the dish. Hubby absolutely loved it. The honey-mustard sausages tasted so good they went down a treat. absolutely wonderful.

To make the roasted vegetables, I combined beautiful summer vegetables in a large bowl and tossed it with 2 table spoon olive oil, paprika and oregano. I mixed the veggies until it was well coated with the oil and . Then tipped it into a large roasting tray and roasted the veggies for 20-30 minutes or until the veggies are golden brown and soft.

To prepare the couscous pour lightly salted boiling water or stock over couscous. Covered and allowed the  couscous to swell for 5 minutes. Then fluffed up the couscous with a fork.  You can add garbanzo beans if desired. For my honey-mustard glazed sausages, I whisked together  honey, dijon mustard and tossed the sausages ( I used chipolatas pork sausages) in it. Then barbecued the sausages for 8-10 minutes (I used a health grill to grill the sausages). Brush more glaze on the sausages as you cook for more intense flavour. Then layered the roasted vegetables and honey-mustard sausages on top of the couscous.

My veggie friends can also enjoy this wonderful dish simply replace the sausages with Halloumi cheese.  It tastes exceptionally well with Halloumi.

    Its flippin freezing here in Australia at the moment, but I reckon if I turn the heat up, maybe add a few extra layers, this delicious summer salad would go down a treat. It’d also be a nice side slightly warmed. This is actually the perfect salad, very versatile. Good way to get some veggies in too. πŸ™‚ Happy weekend. Cheers, Anna
