  • Ingredients.
    • Preheat the oven to 475 degrees (F). Spray an 18 by 13-inch rimmed baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray. Place bell pepper, carrots, onions and zucchini on a baking sheet.
    • Drizzle with 1 Tbsp olive oil and season with salt and toss to evenly coat. Roast in a preheated oven for about 15 minutes until tender, tossing once halfway through roasting.
    • Then if desired move the oven rack closer to the broiler and broil for about 1 – 2 minutes to add a light char.
    • While vegetables are roasting, in a small mixing bowl whisk together the remaining 3 Tbsp olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, cumin, coriander, cinnamon and season with 1/4 tsp salt, set aside.
    • Bring chicken broth, 1/2 tsp salt and turmeric to a boil. Place couscous and raisins in a large mixing bowl, pour hot chicken broth over couscous and stir, cover bowl with plastic wrap and let rest for 5 minutes.
    • Add roasted vegetables, chickpeas, almonds, cilantro, mint and lemon mixture to couscous and toss to evenly coat (while seasoning with a little more salt to taste as desired). Serve warm.
