    1      tablespoon    canola oil

      1/2  teaspoon      black pepper
    1 1/2  cups          water
    2                    scallions -- chopped

 This makes an enticing bed for grilled vegetables, curries, and hearty stews.
 
 In a medium saucepan, heat the oil.  Add the onion, bell pepper, and
 zucchini and saute for about 7 minutes.  Add the seasonings and cook for 1
 minute more.  Add the water and scallions and bring to a boil.  Stir in the
 couscous and beans, if desired, cover, and remove from the heat.  Let stand
 for 10 minutes.
 
 Fluff the couscous before serving.
