Reviews for Seasoned Couscous
"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."
"Excellent side dish! I like the flavors just as it is."
"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 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!"
