Reviews for Ham & Spinach Couscous
"I cut the recipe in half for the two of us. Used some powdered bouillon in the water and a little powdered garlic. It could have used a bit more liquid but the taste was good and it was insanely quick to make."
"Very good. Did use more vegetables."
"This would also be great for brunch. Being from the South, we love our grits, and the couscous is so similar."
"this looks really good, we love couscous. Will add some bullion to the boing water for added flavor."
