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!

This was nice and I enjoyed the change of pace with just veggies! I substituted chicken broth for the veggie broth, and used a whole wheat couscous. I think that just a bit of tweaking with the seasoning would have made it more flavorful, but nonetheless, I'm looking forward to leftovers! Thanks Shannon W.!

Loved this recipe. Very different nice change from the Far East Coucous/Pilaf seasonings. I used chicken stock intead of vegetable stock. Quick, easy and healthy. Thank Shannon for the posting.

I got home late tonight and decided to put this together. It was delicious and all that I had hoped it would be. I added a few good shakes of cinnamon and skipped the butter but aside from that I went right by the recipe. Very simple and oh so good along side a lemon chicken breast. It's very nicely seasoned, slightly warm and low in fat. A winner.
