Oh, this recipe excites me! Reminds me of the other exciting things I think about...like wrinkle fillers and face peels.
this was so good -- i dfdn't have any nuts in the house, but we didn't miss it, except for maybe texture -- it was my dh's first time eating israeli couscous and she is a very finicky eater and she loved it :) -- thanks for sharing.
Yummy! I love the texture of Israeli couscous. I was going to use pine nuts but burned them while toasting :( , so used pumpkin seeds, which worked quite well! Thanks for posting this.
