  2. Heat a griddle pan or grill. Drizzle the courgette slices with oil, then season. Cook for 2 mins, then turn over and cook 1-2 mins more until softened and golden brown. Tip into a large bowl along with the cooked couscous or bulgur wheat, then mix through the remaining ingredients. Serve at room temperature.

Can be prepared in advance and served at room temperature alongside a tagine or moroccan stew. The feta can be left out and it still tastes wonderful.

Great recipe but it says it has no carbs, I am a little dubious :o)

Fabulous recipe. I add red onion and fresh mint which works a treat. Very easy and particularly useful for saving in the fridge and using in the lunch box the next day.

I've been mixing this with the tricolore couscous salad, add cherry tomatoes and the pesto dressing - I've had it for lunch every day this week - delicious!

Delicious - took minutes to make and generous portions (very useful given I kept eating it whilst making the rest of the dinner!).
