Whole Wheat Couscous and Veggies

2 medium carrots, diced - omit these for Wave 1
1/2 cup diced celery
1 teaspoon onion, diced
1/4 cup julienned sweet yellow pepper
1/4 cup julienned sweet red pepper
2 tablespoons olive or canola oil
1 medium zucchini, diced
1/4 cup minced fresh basil
1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 dash hot pepper sauce
1 cup uncooked whole wheat couscous
1 1/2 cups chicken broth or vegetable broth

*note* I generally add more veggies than the recipe calls for - adjust to your tastes. Same with the spices.

Saute the carrots, celery, onion and peppers in oil for 5-6 minutes or until crisp-tender. Add the next five ingredients; mix well. Stir in the couscous. Add broth; bring to a boil. Cover and remove from the heat; let stand for 5-8 minutes. Fluff with a fork and serve immediately.
