Coucous for breakfast - who knew? This was very tasty, rich and creamy. I used pecans because that's what I had on hand. I think other dried fruits, like blueberries or cranberries, would be great as well. Thanks for sharing this recipe!
This made a most delicious lunch yesterday. I used rice couscous, dry almond milk and brown rice syrup and it turned out perfectly. Definitely another keeper! Thanks for posting.
Love it when breakfast taste like a treat and this meets the bill. Made as written using whole wheat couscous and Splenda brown. The powdered milk gives a rich creaminess to this. A great way to start a cold day. Thanks so much for the post.
