This is a great flavourful vegetarian dish or serve along side meat or seafood. You can use regular couscous but the large grain Israeli couscous is the best I think. If you use the Israeli couscous increase the water to 3 cups and cook till done, drain if necessary, I slightly saute the spinach for mine.

I made this recipe as written; used spinach. Overall it was bland...the only flavor that stood out was the lemon. It's not bad but not great. I would not make this dish again.
