Ratatouille Couscous with Saffron

  • SERVINGS: 8
  1. 1 medium eggplant
  2. 2 medium zucchini
  3. 1 medium yellow squash
  4. 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons olive oil
  5. 2 garlic cloves, minced
  6. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  7. 1 medium onion, coarsely chopped
  8. Large pinch of saffron threads
  9. 6 oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, coarsely chopped
  10. 2 2/3 cups chicken stock or canned low-sodium broth
  11. 2 cups couscous (12 ounces)
  12. 1/4 cup coarsely chopped basil
  1. Preheat the oven to 475°. Quarter the eggplant, zucchini and yellow squash lengthwise, then trim off the central portion with the seeds. Cut the vegetables into 1/2-inch dice. In a large bowl, toss the vegetables with 1/2 cup of the olive oil and the garlic. Season with salt and pepper. Spread the vegetables on 2 rimmed baking sheets and roast for 25 to 30 minutes, stirring twice, until tender.
  2. Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large saucepan. Add the onion and saffron and cook over moderate heat, stirring, until softened, about 7 minutes. Add the sun-dried tomatoes and cook for 2 minutes longer. Stir in the stock and bring to a boil; simmer for 3 minutes. Season with 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt and 1/4 teaspoon of pepper. Stir in the couscous, cover and remove from the heat. Let stand for 5 minutes. Stir in the vegetables and basil and serve.
