MY REVIEW

We just love couscous, and this is a pretty good recipe. We had it with TOH Peanutty Pork Kabobs.....complimented each other very well.....something different, something other than rice!

MY REVIEW

I have never made couscous before... and this was so easy and quick. So nice to have something different than rice with a fish dinner.

I did add abit more of each seasoning and some fresh parsley and it had alot of flavour. My husband loved it... so I'll be making it again! (I loved it too!)

I used crushed garlic and was a little heavier on the seasonings. I thought it turned out well and it was very quick

I made this with organic whole wheat couscous. It was totally delicious! I served it with Tangy Parmesan Tilapia -- fast and yummy dinner!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 9, 2010

Made this tonight for the first time and it was just ok. Not sure what to add to it, maybe more garlic powder but it needs more spice to really be 'seasoned'. It was very quick and easy though!
