Cous cous salad!

Ok, this is what i just made, and it's SUCH the great idea for a very very quick fix, that's also very healthy, a tad exotic, simple, and delicious. But don't take my word for it, here's the idea:
First you throw some vegetables in the pan, nicely chopped or sliced, and basically the beauty of it is that you can use any kind of veg you prefer. Zucchini is a must in my own salad, and also eggplant (it fries in the most amazing manner). Very often i use onion and tomato as well, but you could even use a bag of wok veggies, already sliced, for added ease. You fry those in a pan with a dash of olive oil, adding some salt and a bit of sugar to balance out the flavours, and maybe a couple of spices of your choice. I use a little pepper, paprica and chilli powder. When these are done, you pour some balsamic vinegar over them and withdraw from the stove.
While you're waiting for the veg, you make the couscous. Basically you can just boil some water in the kettle, and use about 3 decilitres of couscous to aprox. 2,5 decilitres of water. Leave it for a few minutes, stirring occassionally and adding salt and olive oil. In the end you combine everything, and you can also crumble some feta over it. Also, if the result is a little dry, you may add some extra balsamico.
