"I found this to be just a bit on the bland side. To add more flavor I stirred in some feta. Using garlic salt instead might also work.

Update: my 2-year old son LOVES this, and he hates everything. For that alone I'm rating that at a 4 instead of a 3. I'll leave his portions alone, and add feta or parmesan to our portions. I did try the boxed stuff (that's pre-flavored) and it's pretty yucky compared to this."

"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!"

"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"

"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!"
