Couscous is a busy cooks dream come true--- invaluable for anyone who wants good food on the table fast! My youngest daughter loves to prepare herself a small bowl of couscous when she comes home from school. This recipe, colourful and tasty, with interesting textures, makes a good side or even a main dish. From The Very Easy Vegetarian Cookbook by Alison & Simon Holst
