• Adjust racks to middle and top positions and preheat oven to 425 degrees. Wash and dry all produce. • Trim and dice zucchini into ½-inch pieces. Halve tomatoes. Strip thyme leaves from stems; discard stems. Mince garlic. Halve lemon.


• Toss zucchini, tomatoes, and half the thyme on a baking sheet with a large drizzle of olive oil, salt, and pepper. • Roast on middle rack, tossing halfway through, until tender, about 20 minutes.


Meanwhile, drain and rinse chickpeas. Pat as dry as possible with paper towels. • On a second baking sheet, toss half the chickpeas (all the chickpeas for 4 servings) with paprika, a large drizzle of olive oil, and a pinch of salt and pepper. • Roast on top rack, tossing halfway through, until crisp, about 20 minutes. • TIP: It’s natural for chickpeas to pop a bit.


• Heat 1 TBSP butter (2 TBSP for 4 servings) and garlic in a medium pot over medium-high heat. • Once butter is melted and garlic is fragrant, add couscous, remaining thyme, salt, and pepper to pot. Cook, stirring, until couscous is lightly toasted, 2-3 minutes.


• Stir stock concentrate and 1½ cups water (3 cups for 4 servings) into pot. Bring to a boil, then lower heat and reduce to a simmer. Cook until couscous is al dente, 8-10 minutes. Drain any excess water, if necessary.


• Add half the veggies, half the feta, and a squeeze of lemon juice into couscous; stir to combine. Taste and season with salt and pepper. • Divide finished couscous between plates, then top with roasted chickpeas and remaining veggies and feta.
