In separate batches, oil pumpkin, onion, capsicum and zucchini and roast separately. Allow to cool slightly.

While vegetables are roasting, prepare couscous by placing grains in a bowl and adding boiling water. Cover with cling film and allow grains to absorb all liquid.

To make dressing, combine garlic, lemon juice, vinegar, oil, chilli sauce and cumin. To assemble the salad, fluff couscous with a fork and transfer to a serving dish.
