2. Prepare the Vegetables:

While the couscous is resting, prepare the vegetable filling. Slice all the vegetables very thinly.

Mix the vegetables with coucous mixture.

3. Assemble the Wraps:

Warm the wraps or tortillas according to the package instructions.. Spoon a portion of couscous salad onto each wrap. Squize some lemon juice if desired.

4. Roll the Wraps:

Fold the sides of the wrap inward and then roll it up tightly from one end to the other, enclosing the filling.

5. Serve:

Cut the wraps in half diagonally for easier handling and presentation if desired. Garnish with fresh parsley or cilantro. Serve immediately and savor the delightful combination of flavors and textures in these couscous vegetable wraps.
