INGREDIENTS

    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 1 large carrot, grated
    • 1 zucchini, grated
    • 3 cloves garlic, minced
    • 3 scallions, minced
    • 1¼ cups couscous
    • 2½ cups vegetable broth
    • Grated zest and juice of 1 lemon
    • 1½ cups home-cooked cannellini or other white beans, or 1 (15-ounce) can, drained and rinsed
    • 1/2 cup oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, cut into strips
    • 2 tablespoons minced fresh basil or parsley
    • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Heat the oil in a saucepan over medium heat.
