Couscous With Vegetables and Chickpeas

Ingredients

  1. 1 pound carrots, sliced 3/4 inch thick on the diagonal
  2. 1 head cauliflower (3 pounds), cored and cut into florets
  3. 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
  4. 3 tablespoons olive oil
  5. Coarse salt and ground pepper
  6. 1 cup whole-wheat couscous
  7. 1 tablespoon lemon zest, plus 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice (from 3 lemons)
  8. 1 can (15 ounces) chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  9. 6 scallions, thinly sliced
  10. 5 ounces baby arugula

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Place carrots and cauliflower on a rimmed baking sheet; toss with cumin and 2 tablespoons oil. Season with salt and pepper. Spread half the vegetables on a second baking sheet. Roast until browned and tender, 25 to 30 minutes, rotating sheets and tossing halfway through.
  2. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, bring 1 1/4 cups salted water to a boil. Stir in couscous; cover and remove from heat. Let stand until tender, 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork; set aside to cool, uncovered.
  3. Make dressing: In a small bowl, whisk together lemon zest and juice and remaining tablespoon oil; season with salt and pepper.
  4. In a large bowl, combine roasted vegetables with couscous, chickpeas, and scallions. Place arugula on a serving platter, and drizzle with 1 tablespoon dressing. Add remaining dressing to couscous mixture, and toss; serve over arugula.

Serves 4.
