 Moroccan Vegetable Couscous 
 
This flavorful dish is a meal-in-one; any leftovers are great in a whole wheat pita.

2 cups whole wheat couscous
4 cups boiling water
1 large onion, cut in half and sliced thin
2 cloves of garlic, minced
2 tablespoons water, wine, or sherry
1 16 oz. can of tomatoes, chopped coarsely with liquid included
3 large carrots, cut in 1/2 inch lengths
2 large stalks celery, cut into 1-inch lengths
1 medium turnip, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
1/2 teaspoon cinammon
1/2 teaspoon fennel seeds (optional)
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon turmeric
1 teaspoon paprika
2 teaspoons dark corn syrup
1/8 teaspoon cayenne or to taste
1/2 pound zucchini, cut into 1/2 inch slices
1/2 cup sweet red pepper chopped
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup chopped dried apricots
1 can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1/4 cup chopped fresh mint or parsley

In a large bowl, put 2 cups of whole wheat couscous, pour 4 cups boiling water over it and let sit at least 15 minutes. Fluff with a fork and keep warm.

Saute onion and garlic in water, wine, or sherry until limp. Add tomatoes and their liquid, carrots, celery, turnip, spices, and corn syrup. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer for about 20 minutes. Then add zucchini, red pepper, raisins, apricots, and chickpeas. Simmer for an additional 15 minutes.
