Roast tomatoes and make dressing:

Preheat oven to 250F.

Halve tomatoes through stem ends and arrange, cut sides up, in one layer in a large shallow baking pan. Add garlic to pan and roast in the middle of the oven until the tomatoes are slightly shriveled around edges, about 1 hour.

Peel garlic and puree with oil, water, lemon juice, salt, pepper and 1/2 cup roasted tomatoes in a blender until dressing is very smooth.

Make cousous:

Bring broth to a boil in a heavy saucepan, stir in couscous, then simmer, uncovered, 6 minutes. Cover pan and remove from heat. Let stand 10 minutes.

Transfer couscous to a bowl and combine with the remaining ingredients, dressing, roasted tomatoes and salt and pepper to taste.
