      I used an instant couscous so just added the hot vegetable stock, put the lid on and let the couscous absorb. I would like to try this again using pearl couscous which I think would suit the vegetables being cut into strips but for the instant couscous I would have prefered them finely diced. We did love the flavour the spices imparted though the DM found it a bit too hot which may have been my doing as I was maybe a little heavy handed with the cayenne. Thank you Shannon W for the recipe and to Annacia for the recommendation, made for I Recommend tag game.

      This was very good! I used a red bell pepper, 4 cloves garlic, onion and added some defrosted green peas. I also left out the butter. I'll definitely make this one again. Thanks!

      I loved the flavor of this. I made as directed, but only had about 1 1/2 c. of whole wheat couscous so I cut the broth back to 1 1/2 c. as well. I thought that was just enough for the recipe. This seemed to be more than 4 servings!
