Katie: We had some fresh vegetables left over and I was getting tired of making the same thing over and over. I looked in this cookbook, and found a simple recipe that sounded like something I had never tried before. We had bought some couscous the last time we were at our local Mediterranean market, but had not yet had a chance to use it, so this was a perfect recipe! I didn’t have yellow squash, but decided that the zucchini I had would be fine. I halved the recipe, since it would just be the two of us and it sounded like a recipe that was best eaten fresh. One note I have is not to put the shredded carrots in the pan with the other vegetables at first. The other vegetables need more time to cook, and my shredded carrots stuck to the pan by the time the other vegetables were done. Other than that, this recipe turned out great and is a great way to use a mixture of vegetables!

Gray:  This was really nice and it was fast to make. I would definitely like to have this again.  It had a nice bright flavor and was a great way to appreciate the fresh vegetables.  I hope you enjoy!

    • Thank you! We have made small changes in our everyday diet over the years to try to eat mainly fresh and healthier options. However, all the recipes on our blog do not fall into those categories due to the way we try to make a variety of things from our different cookbooks. While we don’t know the calorie count on our recipes, there are calorie calculators that can be used if that is a tool that you use in your daily life. We found one at http://www.myfitnesspal.com/recipe/calculator, which will allow you to calculate the calories based on the exact ingredients you choose to use. We appreciate your comment and as our blog evolves we take the different comments we have gotten into consideration. We hope you give this recipe a try!
