Carrot and Cilantro Couscous

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Boomette

This is from Coup de Pouce. This is an healthy recipe and done in 20 minutes. No cooking time involved. ETA on July 22, 2011 : I made this recipe. We loved the carrots and peas in the couscous. We thought it was too much fresh cilantro in the couscous. But also we're not fan of cilantro. If you love cilantro, then I'm sure it's going to be perfect for you ;)

This was a great simple recipe. Nice and light too! I used frozen peas and carrots along with fresh carrot which worked well.
