L Love <br/><br/> o ved the onion and goat cheese flavor!
I made this recipe as written, it was easy to make and tasty. Family member stated it was too salty, (I didn't think so), so I might cut down on the salt the next time. Made to the Pink Panthers on the Prowl for ZWT9.
Made for the Photo Tag Game, DH & I are big fans of cous cous. It's a bit like a blank canvas for an artist. It starts w/a theme, allows for your pers pref creativity & works well w/nearly all main entrees. I planned to serve this w/salmon filets & carrots, so I used a generous amt of lemon pepper for a lemon flavour. I added sml dice celery I precooked w/the onions plus black olives for extra texture & colour (prob a bit more cheese than stated too). I sprinkled parsley on the top surface of the cous cous in its serving dish for an added colour variant. Pine nuts are a dietary no-no for DH, but I love them & they would be excellent w/this. I love this recipe for the cooking artistry it allows & its yummy flavours. Thx for sharing it w/us. :-)
