It is pretty good, but the recipe is lacking in instructions as to what to do with the vanilla, raisins, and maple syrup. I just added them during the process.

A great, fast breakfast for kids and grown-ups! It was a tiny bit soupy, but I think I like it better that way than if it was too dry. It reminds me a bit of rice pudding-- but I like the couscous better!

This was really good. I discovered that I didn't like couscous after buying a rather large bag and it had been torture using it up until I found this recipe. Thanks!

It was delicious, but I had the same problem that Mandy from Oz did, although I didn't use a microwave....the couscous didn't absorb as well as I had expected. Otherwise it would have been a five star! Thanks very much.

I really enjoyed this. My changes included no raisins (didn't have and don't like them anyway). Brought this to work and when I reheated it added a half of sliced banana and about a T. of chopped walnuts. Thank you for helping me find another use for the whole wheat couscous I bought!

A lovely simple brekky, a great alternative to porridge. I heated my milk etc in the microwave and my couscous didn't absorb as well as I expected, maybe I should have had the milk a bit hotter, but this tasted yummy with dried blueberries and cranberries. Thanks for posting!

Easy and tasty - I agree with Shelleyred - not enough! I made this with raw goat milk from my own goat. very good.

My toddler loved this! I doubled the recipe and still did not have enough. He ate two bowls. I didn't have any syrup so I used honey instead and it turned out great. It was also very quick compared to most hot cereals. Thanks!

This was very good and provides a nice alternative to oatmeal which I'm not a huge fan of. Like others who have posted comments I initially thought the serving size was a little small, but in reality I found that the serving size posted was just enough to satisfy. I didn't have any maple syrup so I used honey instead. Looking at the recipe it appears I also forgot to sprinkle with cinnamon but it still tasted great.

This was nice. Never thought to use couscous for breakfast, but I gave it a try. This was enough for one person but might double it next time. Thanks Mr. L.!
