tired of take-out: roasted vegetables & chickpeas over couscous

I’m once again working away from my home office during the day and catching up on freelance work at night. I don’t have much time for cooking or blogging and everything seems like a bit of an effort. Don’t even ask me about doing the dishes! But after a bad bout of salty, MSG-laden Chinese delivery, I decided I couldn’t live with take-out horrors any longer. I had to make something simple and try to make use of the bits and pieces left in the cupboard and fridge. This was last night’s dinner and the results were not only delicious but so simple to prepare. You could easily substitute any vegetable you had on hand as this recipe lends well to improvisation. I’d eat this over bad take out any day!

    This looks great! I’m a big fan of roasting vegetables – my dinner last night was roasted veggies & mushrooms over pasta. I also like the combination of yam and chickpeas you’ve got going there.

    I made this for lunch today and it was really yummy! I didn't have all the veggies you specified, so I used onions, sweet potato, parsnips, and yellow carrots. I drizzled the final dish with a little bit of olive oil and lemon juice (no feta for me). Thanks for sharing this recipe!
