1 Preheat oven to 200°C. Chop vegetables into even-sized pieces. Spread on a roasting tray and spray with olive oil. Roast until tender, about 30 minutes depending on the type of veges.
2 Bring stock to the boil in a pot. Place couscous in a glass bowl, add paprika and mix well. Pour boiling stock over the top to just cover couscous. Put a lid (or large plate) over bowl and leave for 10 minutes. Fluff up couscous with a fork, breaking it up.
3 Once veges are cooked, add chickpeas and veges to couscous and toss together. Garnish with hazelnuts and herbs.
