- 1/2 c. couscous
- 1 T. olive oil

Bring broth to a boil. Pour over couscous in a bowl, cover and let stand 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork and set aside.
Meanwhile, heat oil in a large nonstick skillet. Saute onion with salt to taste until onion is tender. Add zucchini and a bit more salt and cook until tender. Stir in garlic and spices ( through pepper). Cook 2 minutes.
Carefully stir zucchini mixture into couscous. Let cool to room temperature. Just before serving, stir in lemon juice and mint.
