    Mikekey's Note:

    This easy and simple couscous is a perfect side for a tagine. if you don't like the flavor of cilantro, try using fresh mint or parsley. For added flavor use broth for the water.

      I love the simplicity of this couscous and anything with lemon gets my vote. Made for ZWT #9.

      I used this as the side to Harissa-Marinated Top Sirloin Tips tonight. Very lemony (which we liked), but a little bit bland in comparison to the steak tips. I would definitely make this again, but I think I would serve it with a more mildly flavored main. Thanks for posting! Made for The Hot Pink Panthers for ZWT9

      Delicious couscous, and bright and colorful to boot! I found it a little on the lemony side, DH liked it as is. We served Recipe #582993 over it, which worked out great. Thanks! Made for ZWT 9.
