Thanks to couscous made earlier in the week, these grain bowls come together quickly. Just allow yourself enough time to roast the vegetables until they are tender and golden before adding them to the bowls.

Loved this, though I added quite a bit of salt and pepper, and ate double the amount of fish.

Sauce was good all-purpose sauce. Not sure if the za'atar added much to the roasted veggies. Seemed like we should have marinated the garbanzo beans? overall pretty basic but good.

I really liked the carrots and chick peas. The fish needed more flavor.
