Directions

  1. Combine rosemary, mint, chile pepper, garlic, the juice from 2 of the limes, 2 tablespoons of the olive oil, and salt and pepper to taste. Add the lamb and coat well with the marinade; marinate at least 1 hour and up to overnight in the refrigerator.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. Combine the eggplant, red and yellow peppers, and onions with 3 tablespoons olive oil; toss to coat. Place vegetables on a large baking sheet in a single layer and roast until tender, about 20 minutes.
  4. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in skillet over medium heat. Remove lamb from marinade (discard marinade); cook and stir until no longer pink, about 10 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add couscous; stir briefly to coat well. Add water; cook and stir until just boiling. Cover; set aside until all the water is absorbed, about 10 minutes. Fluff couscous with a fork, and stir in the juice of 1 lime.
  6. Serve lamb and vegetables over couscous.

I am a vegan but I got inspired. I made lime flavored quinoa, roasted the veggies and added basil and mushrooms and later added marinated tofu. I could have used the marinade listed here but I used a bottled dressing. Good flavors in this recipe!

I read this and thought it would be awesome but I was a little disappointed. The lamb marinade was awesome, but the roasted veggies did not work. It seemed as if the eggplant was not quite done, whether that was the size of the chunks I cut it in, or the times, I'm not sure. I think for the veggies, they either need an increased cooking temp or time, plus they were a little bland, perhaps a mix of some herbs and a touch of salt & pepper on them as well. Overall I think that it has alot of promise, it just needs a little tweaking.

I thought this recipe was DELICIOUS!! I made some slight modifications though: instead of a chili pepper, I added a milder Anaheim pepper, and I used 2 limes instead of the recommended 3. It came out a little too sour still, so I think I am going to use only 1 lime next time. I also used Isreali couscous instead, mainly because it was the ony thing I had. My father-in-law (who we live with) cannot handle spicy food very well, and even he found the substitution of the Anaheim in good taste. The only reason I gave the recipe 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the nutrition/calorie content. I didn't look at the nutrition facts until after I made/ate it, otherwise I probably wouldn't have made it.

This dish was okay. It feels like it is missing something. I did add the yogurt to make a bit of a sauce. Not sure what else it needs - seasoning, crunch factor, something. The marinade for the lamb was good. The putting the dish together needs something more. Maybe a topping that adds some texture? I'm going to try and tweak it the next time around.

I added yogurt to the marinade for the lamb, it gave it some more flavour and a bit of sauce to the lamb and couscous.... also i served a tahini sauce to be added to the dish if desired.

I liberally seasoned the vegetables with cumin, rosemary,thyme, and garlic salt.
