Yield Serves 4

Number Of Ingredients 10

1/2 fennel bulb, sometimes called anise (6 ounces)
1 teaspoon olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 cup water
1 teaspoon salt
2 plum tomatoes, seeded and cut into 1/4-inch dice
1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon freshly grated lemon zest

This confetti couscous is a great way to use up leftover vegetables. I often add whatever I have on hand, such as carrots, celery, or broccoli.

This confetti couscous is a great make-ahead dish. I like to make a big batch on the weekend and then eat it throughout the week for lunch or dinner.
