Directions

Step 1

Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Cook shallots until soft but not browned, about 4 minutes. Add sweet potato, zucchini, sumac and couscous. Cook, stirring, until couscous starts to toast, about 2 minutes. Add stock, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Cover and reduce heat to low. Cook the couscous for 10 to 12 minutes, or until all the liquid is absorbed and the couscous is al dente. Remove from the heat. Let stand, covered, for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork before serving.
