    Southern Bette's Note:

    This is always a hit for potlucks in the summer, but my husband loves for me to make it at home all the time. I like to pair it with falafel balls, stir fried tofu, or any other Greek, middle eastern, or vegetarian dish. It taste delicious served on a bed of crisp, whole romaine leaves for a light lunch or dinner. Adjust the jalapeno pepper to taste. Enjoy!

      Flavour wise great but had some problems with the cooking of the recipe, I added hot stock/broth to the mix, took of the heat and covered and 10 minutes later well I really had to work to separate the grains of couscous so they were fluffy but still ended up with some small lumps, so I think if would sauté the vegies up as per direction and then add to the couscous and then had hot broth/stock, cover and then fluff with a fork. I did use dried chilli flakes in place of the jalapeno and as we are not big fans of cilantro/coriander I used sweet basil which went well with the tomatoes. Thank you Southern Bette, made for Name that Ingredient tag game.

      Very good! It has been a few years since I had couscous. This was a very nice change for spring. Very forgiving. Even with out the pine nuts and vegetable broth(just used water). It is also a nice change from the usual flavor of mint. Mint is nice but tends to be a little over powering in some recipes. Will make this one again.
