OK but nothing special as written. I would try some of the additions others mentioned next time.

This couscous is absolutely delicious! I made homemade chicken stock and added extra cranberries and onions and just a pinch of salt. The result was amazing. I will definitely make this again.

I had some leftover mulled cranberry drink and dried cherries from the Christmas holiday, so I substituted the broth and cranberries with these ingredients. It had a very pleasant fruity flavor and was a nice breakfast treat. I'm sure it would be equally good as a side dish with chicken or pork.

One of my favorite recipes I've made countless times since it was published in 2005. It was one of those recipes that (at the time) I thought the combination of ingredients was so weird/unusual that I just had to try it. And I've loved it ever since!

I served this side with Spinach and Mushroom Smothered Chicken-good compliment and healthy and quick like the chicken recipe. I have used couscous and small alphabet pasta when I was out of couscous.
