Apple and Mint Couscous

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Boomette

Recently, I began eating couscous and I like to try different recipes. I saw this one in the magazine of Ricardo. ETA : I made it on September 5, 2011. I omitted the peas. I used a Paula Red apple. It's so yummy. Great blend of flavors.

This really "hit the spot". DH could not stop eating it. I wasn't sure that the combination of veg and apple would work, but it did!! I felt that 4 cloves of garlic was going to be too much so i only used 3. But I should have stuck to the recipe and used all 4. Make sure to taste the couscous before serving to adjust the salt. I used home made broth (no salt) so the end result needed a fair amount of salt added to it to bring our the flavours. Over all a very good and easy easy dish to make. and well writen recipe that was simple to follow. Will certainly made again.
