  3. When the couscous is sufficiently cooked, season it with salt and oil and spread it on a baking sheet and work it with your hands so as to separate all the grains well.
  4. Prepare the vegetables, cut them into very small brunoise and cook briefly in a pan with a little olive oil.
  5. Add a few spoonfuls of vegetable broth to the couscous so that it remains moist and the vegetable brunoise. Keep warm.
