Reviews forVegetable Couscous
"Made once and it was delicious. Can I make ahead and freeze?"
"What a good side dish that will work well with almost any protein. I used dried basil (only 1tablespoon, which was plenty) because I didn't have any fresh, and it worked well. The recipe makes lots, so you'll probably have enough to use with leftovers."
"Will make again!"
"Great summer side. This has a fresh from the garden taste. Very quick to make."
