couscous with aubergine

Top Review by Anu_N

Fantastic! I scaled this down to 1 serving since I'm the only one at home who likes eggplant. I didn't have shallots so I used a total of 1 tablespoon of onions. I also used 1/2 cup water and peppered the final product generously. This is the first time I've used couscous, and I definitely will make this again!
