  1. Pre heat an oven to 180ºC. Mix the peppers, courgette, onion, chilli, seasoning and 60ml of the olive oil in a bowl.  Transfer to a baking tray and cook in the oven for 6-8 minutes until soft.  Remove and set aside to cool.
  2. In the meantime, add the couscous to a heat proof bowl and add the remaining olive oil. Pour over 300ml of boiling water, cover the bowl with cling film and set aside for 8-10 minutes until fluffy and all water has been absorbed.
  3. Break up the couscous with a folk and mix in the cooked vegetables, herbs, paprika, lemon juice, seasoning and some more olive oil to taste.
