In a large saucepan, saute the onion in the olive oil for 3 minutes to soften. Add the broccoli stems and continue to saute the mixture an additional 3 minutes. Add the broccoli florets, red pepper, and garlic, and continue to saute an additional 4 minutes while stirring often. Add the water, lemon juice, salt, and pepper, and bring the mixture to a boil. Add the couscous, stir, cover, remove the saucepan from the heat, and set aside for 5 minutes. Using a fork, fluff the couscous while stirring in the remaining ingredients. Taste and adjust seasonings, to taste. Serve hot, cold, or at room temperature as a side dish or salad.
