Place the vegetable stock in the microwave oven and heat on MICRO POWER high until the temperature reaches to about 80-90°C. Pour the hot vegetable stock onto the couscous. Cover with a lid or aluminium foil, and set aside for 10 minutes.

Combine onions and garlic, zucchini, squash and red capsicum in a microwave-safe container. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Mix well and cook on MICRO POWER high for 5 minutes or until soft but not mushy. Stir the vegetable mixture after every 1-2 minutes for even cooking.

Transfer to a serving platter and garnish with fresh mint leaves.
